Worship in Women's Hands

A documentary exploring the meaning of women's liturgies for faith communities now and into the future

Screening in Sicily

Worship in Womens Hands was screened, in excerpts, at the 21st Congress of the Societas Liturgica in Palermo, Sicily on August 7. Over 200 liturgical scholars from around the world and from a great many different churches had gathered in Palermo, Italy, for a Congress on the theme “Liturgy and the Public Square.” Within a paper on gender as a fundamental marker of all cultural formations, i.e. also sacred and public space, Teresa Berger presented “Liturgies in Women’s Hands” as one contemporary way of reconfiguring the gendered constraints for women which have marked sacred space in the past. A spirited discussion followed the presentation.
