Msgr. O’Connor Talks Eucharist, Confirmation Age, & Assumption

On this edition of “Liturgical Life,” our friend Msgr. Gerard O’Connor, Director of the Office of Divine Worship, joined the Morning Blend to update us on liturgical developments in the Archdiocese of Portland. In this episode, Msgr. O’Connor explains:

  • The reasoning and logistics behind the Confirmation age change by Portland Archbishop Alexander Sample,
  • Why the Solemnity of the Assumption, celebrated on August 15, is not a Holy Day of Obligation in 2022, and
  • How the Archdiocese is participating in the 3-year Eucharistic Revival, including plans for every parish to have a regular time of Eucharistic Adoration.
