June Institute to focus on new missal


DAVENPORT — The Diocese of Davenport’s 2011 June Institute, “Preparing the Way,” will offer guidance and resources to help faith formation leaders introduce the new Roman missal.

Participants will explore the background of the liturgy, discover ways to engage in the liturgy through the new texts, and focus on opportunities to help children better understand and actively participate in the Mass.
