We welcomed over 400 people from throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to the event that celebrated the Church’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilium. This Constitution called Catholics to aggiornamento, renewal, by incorporating traditional and cultural influences of the worshiping community in the ways liturgy is celebrated. We were blessed by live presentations of sacred prayer, dance, music and regalia of the Los Angeles Kateri Circle, the beautiful choir voices from Holy Name of Jesus Parish, folklorico dancers from Herencia Mexicana de Cabeza de Vaca Cultura, and Mariachi music. Participants were also introduced to Labyrinth prayer, wrote prayer intentions and placed them on a prayer tree, drew sacred images in chalk in front of the Doheny mansion, and viewed a video montage that showed the ways in which many other cultures celebrate liturgy in song and dance. Being a community of hospitality, our guests enjoyed a sumptuous lunch catered by Urban Taco. We were further blessed by beautiful weather and a community captivated by how wonderful our communal prayer is when we welcome the richness of diversity of the cultures and traditions of the people gathered.
