Study Day for Clergy and Lay Faithful – October 3, 2018

To: Priests, Deacons, Brothers, Sisters, Principals, Parish and Chancery Staff
From: Dr. Patricia DeJarnett, Liturgical Coordinator, Office for Divine Worship

Please join Archbishop Gregory for a Study Day for local Catholic clergy and lay faithful on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Atlanta Omni Hotel, 100 CNN Center, Atlanta, GA 30303.

Archbishop Gregory has graciously invited The Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commission (FDLC) to hold their 49th annual meeting in Atlanta on October 2-4, 2018. This year’s theme is, “The Body of Christ: A Prophetic Sign of Unity and Concord.”

Each year, the FDLC offers a study day for local Catholic clergy and lay faithful as part of their annual meeting. Archbishop Gregory will be one of the keynote speakers for this year’s study day and will address how liturgy and its minsters can be a source of healing, acceptance and unity despite the divisiveness and harm of racism.

The FDLC consists of members from diocesan worship offices and liturgical commissions in the United States and assists the Bishops Committee on Divine Worship (BCDW) by providing leadership, scholarship and resources to aid in the celebration of the liturgy. Archbishop Gregory is the chair of the BCDW.

Please see the attached brochure for the schedule, speakers and registration information. For questions, please contact the FDLC National Office at or call 202-635-6990.
