Redemptorist, Baclaran, Philippines

Mission - Liturgy

Liturgical and sacramental services like masses, novenas, confessions and blessings continue to be the main services of our shrines.  Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help on Wednesdays is the main activity churches, more often than not eclipsing Sunday Masses.

 

Besides the novena age-old spiritual exercises beneficial to the spiritual growth of the people, for example, Taize recollection prayers, morning prayers with the people in the church and rosary (especially October and May) are part of the routine in the shrine.

 

Our liturgies in the shrine will not be enlivening and meaningful  without raising the level of participation of the people in the liturgy, integrating people's calendar and people's aspirations and concerns in the liturgical celebrations.  There is a constant challenge in the shrine as to how the devotees can grow from mere devotional piety to missional and transformational faith and spirituality.

 

Efforts have been made to enhance the "full, conscious and active participation" of the people in liturgy by means of, among others, lively singing, better coordination among all ministers, improving the technicalities like lights and sounds, the use of multi-media, etc.  This entailed a re-orientation and retraining of all ministers- from the presider to the altar server.
