Join St. Ambrose Academy for a faculty speaker event featuring Ms. Theresa Klinkhammer, SAA religion teacher and Director of Student Ministries. Ms. Klinkhammer will share a talk based on a text that is a part of our senior high religion curriculum and is especially timely for Catholics who want to incorporate their faith more into their daily lives.

Blessed Columba Marmion was a leader of the liturgical renewal in the early 20th century. His book, Christ in His Mysteries, shows how we enter into the mysteries of Christ’s life by living liturgically.

This talk will first delve into Marmion’s thought concerning participation in Christ’s mysteries and then explore this idea through looking at the power of the propers of the Mass, especially those of the Easter season.
