It is a framework through which we faithful can discover and develop a more personal, intentional, and meaningful relationship with Christ, the Church, and our Catholic Faith.
The Purpose of Liturgical Living…
Liturgical Living’s purpose is twofold. The first is to help Catholics understand and live out their baptismal promises by immersing themselves in the cycle of seasons, themes, celebrations, and prayers that make up the liturgical year. The second purpose is to instill a sense of confidence in every layperson, regardless of their capacity within the parish community, to share their faith and inspire others to encounter Christ.
Here at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, we celebrate Ember Days as part of Living Liturgically in our parish.
Ember Days are celebrate four times a year, following the seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. Each season consists of three days of celebration: Reflection, Mass/Adoration/Confession, and Stewardship. See also Contemporary Observation of Ember Days and Lenten Ember Days for more information.
Upcoming Fall Ember Days:
