Liturgy Training Publications, in partnership with the National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM), introduces a new series of training courses: The Essentials of Catholic Liturgy (ECL). Offered in three tracks to assist participants in need of various levels of instruction, these training courses offer instruction and formation in the fundamentals of Catholic liturgy and the essential liturgical documents.
Each track will be a collaborative form of learning that combines expert presentations on the history and theology of liturgy with a chance to engage in mystagogical reflections with others in the course.
ECL will be offered virtually throughout the year and live at the annual NPM convention. The online course will be offered periodically and will consist of six ninety-minute sessions. Participants will be assigned texts to read and videos to watch between the weekly sessions and will receive access to special downloads, videos, and a class forum.
