For more than twenty years, The Summit has been serving the Church in Melbourne and beyond by forming, educating and inspiring those in liturgical ministries.
Since parishes are fundamentally sacramental communities formed through the liturgy—‘the source and summit of the Christian life’ (Lumen Gentium, §11)—we cannot support, encourage or equip the Church’s mission effectively without a strong focus on the liturgical and sacramental aspects of parish life. With our newly launched and reimagined Summit Online site, then, we hope to empower parish leaders and liturgy teams to create beautiful liturgies that in turn inspire missionary disciples to go out in a spirit of true Gospel boldness—a boldness springing from the endlessly self-giving love of God, which we experience most profoundly in the Eucharist.
Last year, to this end, we surveyed regular Summit users about their needs, and based on the results, the new Summit Online site has been developed to provide Melbourne parishes with high-quality, freely accessible and engaging liturgy resources and liturgical-formation materials in a more attractive, easy-to-use online format.
To keep up to date with new Summit Online articles, resources and news items, be sure to open and read your monthly Proclaim e-newsletter. If you haven’t yet subscribed, you can do so here, and if you know of others in your parish who might be interested in finding out more about The Summit Online, please forward this to them.
In the meantime, go to summit.melbournecatholic.org and start exploring!
