Overview

In A Sacramental People: Initiation into a Faith Community, Michael Drumm and Tom Gunning face these questions pastorally, practically, and realistically. After examining the power and potential of the symbols and ritual acts themselves, they offer a range of ideas and approaches to show how our sacramental celebrations can speak more directly and powerfully to Catholics today.

They begin by offering ten principles for renewing sacramental celebrations, and then apply these to the sacraments of initiation: baptism, confirmation, and eucharist. They note how the early church maintained a fundamental unity among these sacraments. They also offer a valuable catechesis of the Sunday liturgy as well as a range of tried and tested rituals for various occasions that support and nurture parish celebrations.

This valuable resource offers a contemporary, accessible, pastoral theology for each of the sacraments of initiation and can help parish leaders, liturgy planners, and adult discussion groups deepen both their understanding of and their parish's celebration of these special sacraments.
