Dissent Fest

The brochures and registration packets are now available in parishes throughout the Los Angeles archdiocese, for the RE Congress.

As a member of USC Our Savior Chapel's Peer Ministry Council, I recieved the packet this evening and tried very hard not to show my distaste.

Liturgical direction is headed under Ed Archer, from St. Monica's Parish in Santa Monica. That's for the Youth Day. St Monica's thinks that having a homosexual community and a dating lounge in the church's auditorium is the greatest way of attracting young adults.

As for Mass, there are different "characters", or flavors. There are some pretty wild themes: "Church on Way to Unity," Hawaiian, Celtic, etc.

There's the returning classic of Sacred Space that unwittingly promotes Centering Prayer.
