VAN DER MERWE, Gert Jacobus  and  WEPENER, Cas. Ascension Day and faith formation in the school context: A Ritual-liturgical exploration. STJ [online]. 2018, vol.4, n.1, pp.451-472. ISSN 2413-9467.

The main aim of this article is to consider the value of special liturgical services in facilitating faith formation in children. Ideally liturgical rituals should be developed and performed in such a way as to recognise, respect and involve the full spectrum of human nature. This article focuses on 1 of 10 strategic recommendations developed from empirical qualitative research in the school context. The article closes with the pragmatic task by way of a proposal on the holistic design and use of liturgical rituals in the school context1 to deepen its potential in stimulating and facilitating faith formation in children.

Keywords : Faith; liturgy; ritual; school; worship.
