A series of meetings that will take place in Krakow's Dominican church on the third Monday of the month during the academic year.
"Liturgical espresso" is a series of meetings that will take place in Krakow's Dominican church on the third Monday of the month during the academic year.
Fathers from the Dominican Liturgical Center, the organizer of the meetings, will talk about the liturgy. Catechesis is addressed not only to advanced people in religious and theological knowledge, but also to those to whom the word liturgy speaks little and would broaden their knowledge.
After the "Home Liturgy" meetings which are very popular, the Dominican Liturgical Center wants to propose a series of monthly meetings on liturgy in a light and accessible version. For the liturgy is not only an object for specialists, theologians or for those who know Latin or the traditions of the Church. The liturgy is in the Church for everyone. We want to give a chance to those who can not afford such luxury, and want to feed and deepen their spiritual life.
"Liturgical espresso" - combines the aspect of expressiveness of the content to be conveyed with a short form (such as a small volume of espresso) and the informal character of the discussion (like a meeting over coffee).
The topic of the meeting will be announced a week in advance. All questions that participants may come up with, can send via our website ("Ask a Question" tab above).
The meeting will be led by Anna Kluz-Łoś from Radio Kraków, whose task will be to question guests.
We will inform you later about any retransmission or access to meeting content.
The partner of our meetings is Lajkonik Bakery and Cafe
