Critical reflection on the human experience

About the Program Certificate in Liturgical Studies

The Certificate in Liturgical Studies provides specialized instruction and professional preparation for those desiring to deepen and expand their understanding of the Christian sacramental and liturgical tradition. It serves the needs of Catholic and Protestant catechists, worship coordinators, church musicians, teachers, chaplains, and other lay ecclesial ministers seeking a strong foundation in liturgical/sacramental studies.

The Certificate will meet the ministerial competency needs and national certification standards of these ecclesial ministers and is the only certificate program of its kind in Florida.

If you are interested in a broad range of diocesan and parish ministries, a Liturgical Studies certificate might be right for you. When you study liturgical practice and tradition, you will see how liturgy is at the heart of Catholic worship through word and sacrament. It allows ministers to foster meaningful liturgical participation through which religious communities encounter God and express their faith.

Liturgy is a dynamic, human/divine activity which expresses in a unique and concrete way the mystery of Christ and the beliefs of the community of faith which is the Church. It is an essential source of formation in Christian discipleship. A Certificate in Liturgical Studies provides an accessible avenue for lay ecclesial ministers and others to deepen and expand their understanding of this living reality.
