LT 200: Liturgy Workshop
This one-week, non-credit workshop offered during July focuses on how the Book of Common Prayer(1979) and the Book of Occasional Services can be used in the corporate worship of either a “traditionalist” or “modern” congregation. The course considers what resources are essential in the planning of worship in either style of performance.
Each sacrament, office, or rite included in the BCP 1979 is discussed in its historical context. The class explores the psychological and symbolic associations that have gathered around each rite and discusses the theological appropriateness to the worshipping community. Finally, the class discusses the relationship that gesture and movement, music, and silence, visual and sensory experiences have to the rubrics and texts of our liturgical tradition.
This workshop is intended for two different types of inquirers: 1) Laypersons who have grown up in the Episcopal Church and know what liturgy is supposed to be, but have never been taught the reasons why liturgy is the way it is, and 2) Clergy who were never taught the how of worship; that is, the preparation and practice of liturgical actions in the Episcopal liturgy.

CH 200: Anglican Heritage Workshop
What does it mean to be Anglican? This non-credit workshop offered this July will serve as a guide to answering that question. Anglican Heritage is an introduction to Anglicanism as a way of prayer, a form of worship, a theological inheritance, an ecclesiological phenomenon, and a spiritual tradition. Anglican Heritage will give you exposure to several of our faculty members and how they interpret Anglicanism’s contribution to their disciplines (e.g. liturgy, spirituality, biblical interpretation, et al), its historical development and its documentary tradition.
The cost of attendance is $500 per workshop. Please fill out the Non-Degree Application Form to begin the registration process.
