Fr. Geoffrey Young is pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Saskatoon and is the Director of Liturgy in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon.

Catholic Liturgical and Sacramental Life four-part Adult Faith series, which will be held 7-9 p.m. Tuesdays from Jan. 11 to Feb. 1, 2022, either via Zoom or in-person at  the Cathedral of the Holy Family, 123 Nelson Road, Saskatoon.

Each of the four sessions will include a presentation by Fr. Geoffrey Young, followed by a question-and-answer session.

  • 7 pm Tuesday, Jan. 11: Why Worship? As the People of God, the Liturgy – particularly the Most Holy Eucharist – is the Source and Summit of our Christian life. Drawing from the Scriptural and Magisterial tradition, Fr. Young will examine the nature and purpose of liturgical worship in our lives.
  • 7 pm Tuesday, Jan. 18: The Church: Model and Mission – Drawing particularly from the document Lumen Gentium, Fr. Young will explore the nature of the Church, and how God continues to work and sanctify the People of God through the Church. The role of the Blessed Virgin Mary as a model of the Church and model of discipleship will also be explored.
  • 7 pm Tuesday, Jan. 25: A Sacramental People – Through the Incarnation of Christ, God reveals himself truly and fully. That which is unseen and eternal is manifest when the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. Fr. Young will continue to examine how the sacramental rites and Christian life continue to be an encounter with Christ and His bride, the Church.
  • 7 pm Tuesday, Feb. 1: Our Call To Holiness – In the public liturgy and popular piety of the People of God, we are called to holiness and happiness in this life, and in the next. Fr. Young’s concluding talk will reflect on the place of prayer – public and private – as well as popular piety and how it enriches liturgical life. Fr. Young will examine how the lives of the saints and the liturgical year sustain and strengthen our spiritual life.
