National Centre for Liturgy

Over the years, the National Centre for Liturgy has conducted courses in Pastoral Liturgy and Ministry on Monday’s and Tuesday’s, with classes in the morning and afternoon.  They have proved very successful, offering people a deeper insight to the ministry they exercise, helping them to understand better the liturgy they have a responsibility in preparing, and a personal enrichment of the ways of Christian worship.

We are planning for the next academic year which begins in September 2017. The courses are offered at different levels: Diploma, Higher Diploma and Masters in Theology, specialising in Liturgy. The awards are accredited by the Pontifical University, St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth, Co. Kildare.

The courses provide training for those who wish to prepare for parish ministry, and who may be called upon to undertake roles of leadership and formation in carious pastoral areas. These areas include celebrating the Liturgy of the Word, leading prayer when the Eucharist is not celebrated, Baptismal teams, Funeral ministry teams and other liturgical ministries.
