Floral Art for the Liturgy


Course structure The course is structured in two levels of four meetings each.
For the academic year 2021-2022 the first level course (waiting for Christmas) will take place on Friday 26 November, 3 December, 10 December and 17 December 2021.
The second level course (pending Easter) will take place on Friday 18 March,  25 March, 1st April, 8 April 2022.

The flowers in the Liturgy Like music, singing, light, speech, gesture, perfume, dance, the beauty of linen and silk, architecture and painting, flowers are a language capable of introducing the experience of God and to proclaim the Mystery. They are present in the liturgy for a humble service: preparing the environment where God meets his people, his bride, a “nuptial” meeting, of “covenant”, which must be marked by the sober and elegant beauty, by the party and by the gratuity.

To whom the course is addressedThe course is addressed to sacristans, custodians of churches and chapels and to all those, men and women, who, generously, wish to begin to place themselves at the service of the liturgy through the floral art, but also to those who, being already engaged in this activity, want to deepen their technical and liturgical knowledge.

Location and hours The lessons are held at the “Sala Riunioni” of the Pontifical Athenaeum S. Anselmo on Friday from 15:00 to 18:00. Lessons will also be available online.

Enrolment fees The cost of the second level course is € 175.00 + € 40.00 material contribution. Enrolments are received from January 11, 2021, at the General Secretariat of the University.
On completion of the enrolment procedures, the student will receive, by e-mail, the receipt of payment MAV (Payment By Notice).
At the end of the course a certificate of attendance will be issued.
