September 19-20, 2008: The date is getting close but there is still time to register for a blockbuster conference entitled “The Bible and the Liturgy: Written Text Becomes Living Word” at the Liturgical Institute in Mundelein, near Chicago. If you’ve always wanted to know how Catholic worship grows from the revelations of scripture itself and be able to tell your fallen-away family and friends, this is the conference to attend. Located on one of America’s most beautiful campuses, the event will include the speakers and topics listed below, a theater organ concert, chanted prayer and Mass, and the Litany of the Virgin Mary at a beautiful Lourdes grotto. Come for one day or two. The Saturday registration fee of only $50 (for four speakers!) includes lunch. For more information, visit the link above or call 847.837.4542.
