Workshop on ‘The Eucharist: Food and Drink for the Works of Mercy’


Saint Teresa of Calcutta Parish, Collingswood, will host a liturgical workshop on Oct. 22 entitled “The Eucharist: Food and Drink for the Works of Mercy.” It will be led by Father Richard Fragomeni, a priest of the Diocese of Albany, N.Y.

The workshop will focus on the Eucharistic Celebration as the essential way for Catholics to sustain their efforts to be the mercy of Jesus in the world. Throughout the day, Father Fragomeni will present four movements highlighting the importance of Word and Eucharist as nourishment for the Works of Mercy.

Father Fragomeni has been a member of the faculty of the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago for more than 25 years. Central to his work is a fascination with the power of liturgy and preaching in the transformation of the human heart. He gives presentations nationally and internationally and is the author of numerous articles and books on liturgical, sacramental and catechetical topics. He has collaborated with Brother Mickey McGrath, OSFS of Camden on two books, “Blessed Art Thou Mother, Lady, Mystic, Queen” and “At the Name of Jesus: The Way, the Truth and the Light.”

The event will be held at Good Shepherd School Cafeteria, 100 Lees Ave, Collingswood on Oct. 22, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Doors will open at 9 a.m. for sign-ins and coffee, and the workshop will begin at 9:30 a.m. Lunch will be served.

Preregistration is required. Donation: $15 (Checks payable to Saint Teresa of Calcutta Parish on or before the workshop). To register or for more information call 856-858-0298 or email
