Something Old, Something New: What Parish Leaders Need to Know About the New Rite of Marriage

As with the revised translation of the Roman Missal, the Church continues to revise the translations of its various rites. The next ritual that has been completed is the Order of Celebrating Matrimony, formerly called the Rite of Marriage.

If you're a liturgist, music coordinator, wedding coordinator, priest, or deacon, you will want to know how the changes in this new ritual will affect your planning of the wedding liturgy and how you prepare engaged couples for their Catholic wedding. This workshop will give you:

- basic information on what has changed and what hasn't changed in the rite
- deeper understanding of the meaning of the wedding ritual and actions
- best practices for preparing engaged couples and their families and friends to participate fully in the rite
- suggestions for liturgical music for Catholic weddings
- guidelines for what not to do at a Catholic wedding

This free workshop will be led by Diana Macalintal, Director of Worship for the Diocese of San Jose.
