Liturgies for the Young in Years by Dorothy McRae-McMahon


Liturgies for the Young in Years by Dorothy McRae-McMahon

This proposed book offers a diverse and imaginative collection of original liturgies for the 'high days' of the church year. It grows out of the author's experience and conviction that these familiar events can be brought alive by focusing on specific themes within the central message of each festival. The chapter headings are: Christ the King, Advent, Christmas, Lent, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Easter Day, Pentecost, and Eucharist's for Special Occasion; with each providing a goodly selection of material which has all arisen from experience and can be used or adapted with confidence.
