Ars Celebrandi, the largest workshop for Traditional Liturgy in Poland and Eastern Europe, took place — for the fourth time — at The Shrine of Our Lady, in Licheń, Poland, 20-27 July 2017. More than forty Polish Priests, working in their homeland and many countries around the World (including South Korea, U.S.A., Latvia, Germany, Austria), learned to Celebrate The Mass in The Extraordinary Form of The Roman Rite, and ten of them had their first Tridentine Masses. More than 100 Lay-People have been taught to Serve as Altar Servers or Liturgical Singers (Gregorian Chant and Renaissance Polyphony).
In addition to the daily Masses (Solemn, Sung, or Recited), Gregorian Lauds, Vespers, and Compline were Celebrated, with large participation of The Clergy. It is all the more important, as this type of Liturgy has vanished in recent years almost completely in The Roman Church.
The so-called,"Polish” Masses, with the singing of old Folk Religious Songs, were also Celebrated. This form of Devotion blossomed after The Council of Trent, in Poland, with special permission of The Polish Bishops and is not known outside our Country.
The workshops gave opportunity not only for learning, but also for Spiritual Growth, as Retreat Teachings were Preached on a daily basis. This year, they were dedicated to the five conditions of The Sacrament of Penance. Participants also took part in the evening Marian Procession, with Candles, Celebrated every Saturday in The Shrine of Our Lady, in Licheń, Poland.
Morover, the special guest of the workshop was Fr. Dennis Koliński from The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, Chicago, United States, a Religious Congregation in the former Polish Parish of St. John Cantius, Chicago. The Charism of The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius is the work for strengthening the Sacred and supernatural character of The Liturgy — in both Forms of The Roman Rite. They accomplish it through Parish Ministry, Liturgical Music workshops, Catechesis, workshops of Celebration and Ministry, and Latin language courses.
Ars Celebrandi workshops are organised by The Una Voce Polonia Association, under the Honorary Patronage of The Ordinary, His Excellency Bishop Wiesław Mering. Next year’s edition, the fifth one, will take place on 12-19 July, 2018, at The Shrine of Our Lady, in Licheń, Poland.
