paper description
Liturgy is an essential part of the Christian message. As Carter states: "The child who is taught to live the liturgy comes to live the life of Christ, for the liturgy not only teaches about Christ, it gives what it teaches: Christ Himself. It is the purpose of this paper to determine the effectiveness of the paraliturgy as a preparation for Liturgy for the mentally retarded child, as compared to classroom instruction as a preparation for Liturgy for the mentally retarded child.
