Alumna Lorraine Hess (MPS 2018) presented a workshop titled “Eucharistic Adoration: A Communal Invitation to Mission” with Fr. Rick Hilgartner at the 2018 convention of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians. A podcast of the presentation is now available. In it, Lorraine and Fr. Rick offer suggestions regarding how worshiping communities might enhance their members’ experience of Adoration.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament occurs in every Mass, and the Rite of Eucharistic Exposition and Benediction regulates it. Through adoration, Catholics acknowledge Christ’s presence in the Sacrament of Eucharist where we are invited to experience spiritual union with him that results in sacramental communion. By exploring the history and theology of Adoration, Lorraine and Fr. Rick offer faith communities ideas for liturgy and music that create dynamic experiences of Adoration.
