Teaching Latin Eucharistic Hymns

Project host:

Holy Child Catholic School

Project description:

Holy Child Catholic School is honored to be part of the Cardinal Newman Society Eucharistic Education Task Force! We are focusing on a revival of Eucharistic literacy with a special focus on devotion in the liturgy and during Eucharistic Adoration. In particular, we are forming the mind and the heart in deeper reverence for our cherished Eucharistic Hymns such as “Tantum Ergo” and “O Salutaris Hostia.”

Our school is going to revive our study and use of Eucharistic Hymns, particularly those in Latin. We will sing them in music class and study them closely in Latin class. Our hope is the words to “Tantum Ergo” and “O Salutaris Hostia” will be deeply embedded in our student’s minds and hearts.

We are also devoting a Holy Hour a week just for the school every Wednesday from 3-4 to build Eucharistic Awareness not just with students, but with parents, families, parishioners and the whole community.
