Rev. John F. Baldovin, S.J., ’69, professor of historical and liturgical theology at the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry and a member of the Board of Trustees at Holy Cross will give a talk titled 'Vatican II and the Reform of the Liturgy: Where do we Stand 50 Years Later.' The event, which is free and open to the public, is part of the College’s Jesuit Heritage celebration, a series of ongoing events and discussions, to honor the College’s Jesuit tradition.
In his talk, Fr. Baldovin will address the challenges facing the ongoing reform of the liturgy as well was the liturgical agenda for the future. “It’s no secret that there is a contest going on in the Catholic church over interpreting the meaning of Vatican II,” says Fr. Baldovin. “At the forefront is a battle over the meaning of the liturgy.”
Fr. Baldovin, a priest of the New York Province of the Society of Jesus, received his B.A. from the College of the Holy Cross, his M.Div. from the Weston School of Theology, and his M.A., M.Phil., and his Ph.D. from Yale University.
