Diana Raiche"Liturgical Catechesis and Catholic Identity." 

Liturgy is formative, contributing to Catholic Identity. To make the formative nature of liturgy more explicit, the General Directory for Catechesis and the National Directory for Catechesis highlight the integration of liturgy and catechesis through liturgical catechesis. Such integration draws upon the inductive as well as deductive operations of both liturgy and catechesis. Liturgy as formation depends on an experience of liturgy that includes and goes beyond learning about liturgy. Those who participate in liturgy also need to reflect on the liturgical experience and the languages of liturgy in relation to life experience. Such liturgical language goes beyond official prayers and assembly responses.   READ MORE

Capstone Professor Celebrates Half a Century

"I ended up at UD by accident," said Professor of Management Bruce Evans, who has taught at UD for 50 years now. Half a century ago, he and his brother were heading home to the East Coast from a camping trip and stopped by UD on a whim; Bob Lynch, dean of the newly formed Graduate School of Management (now the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business), hired Professor Bruce, as he is known by students, on the spot.
