Being a Eucharistic People in Digital Space: Liturgy in the Time of COVID
The global COVID-19 pandemic of 2020-2021 has had major ramifications for how human beings gather for worship throughout the world. The impact has been especially pronounced among sacramental communions for whom the Eucharist is the central act of worship. How are churches and communions responding, what ecclesiological insights undergird these responses, and what are some of the grassroots implications for these various traditions?

This webinar will feature ecclesiologists from Roman Catholic, Pentecostal, Protestant, and Orthodox Christian traditions who are reflecting upon and practicing the Eucharist and worship in the context of the pandemic. First, theological considerations will be framed around the essential question: what constitutes a Eucharistic assembly? Participants will then address practical considerations, including grassroots and liturgical initiatives. Finally, Aaron Hollander, associate editor of Ecumenical Trends, will consider where we go from here and what the future of Eucharist and worship more broadly will be.

The event is co-sponsored by Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and its Department of Theology and Religious Studies with Ecclesiological Investigations International Research Network, and the North American Academy of Ecumenists.
