Reprentatives will be drawn from throughout the world. The objective will be to understand the relationship between liturgy and life, with a focus on these themes:
a)The experience of liturgical prayer in the teresian Carmel;
b)The effect of the liturgy on our personal, community and apostolic lives (Const. 56);

Nine conferences to be offered will include such subjects as the relationship between architecture and the liturgy, symbolism and the liturgy, and a musical presentation and animation of a typical Carmelite liturgy.
