Active Participation

As Church, the Body of Christ, we believe that full, conscious and active participation in the faith life of the community is essential to good worship.

Liturgy at Merrimack College, especially the Eucharist, encourages such participation and is a central activity that deepens one’s commitment to self, God and others.
