Liturgy as Enacted Reconciliation:  The experience of All Inclusive Ministries (AIM)

by Gilles Mongeau SJ Th.D. (Regis College at the University of Toronto)

The Second Vatican Council affirms that the Eucharist "makes" the Church, that it is the source and summit of our communal life as Christ's Body. The various General Instructions of the Roman Missal have, over the years, articulated how the actions of ritual itself are an enactment of right relationship with God, with the neighbour and with creation. This presentation will share how one Eucharistic community that reaches out to LGBTQ persons lives and expresses this reality in its liturgy.
