St. Andrew Parish in Northeast Portland hosts a conference on full, conscious and active participation in liturgy Saturday, Aug. 13, 10 a.m.-noon.

Liturgists Michael Prendergast and Anne McGuire will lead the session, which includes a continental breakfast.

In light of the latest moto proprio of Pope Francis, Desiderio Desideravi, the presenters will offer highlights from the Second Vatican Council’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy. The presenters’ aim is to engage participants in exploring and enlivening liturgical renewal today.

Both Prendergast and McGuire hold master’s degrees from St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota. McGuire also holds a doctorate from the University of Notre Dame.

A free will offering will be accepted.
