Seminars on implementation of the revised Missal

Father Paul Turner will present four identical seminars this month to help parishes prepare for implementation of the revised Missal.

A priest and pastor of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, he holds a doctorate in sacred theology from Sant’ Anselmo in Rome. He is a former president of the North American Academy of Liturgy and a team member for the North American Forum on the Catechumenate. He serves as a facilitator for the International Commission on English in the Liturgy.

All interested Catholics are invited to attend Father Turner’s seminar. Registration is required.

In addition, there will be sessions for liturgical musicians during April and May to further familiarize musicians with their particular changes. Parish music directors, musicians, cantors and choir members will have opportunities to sing through some of the newly composed (or re-composed) settings for the revised texts. There will be selections from all publishers in various styles of music.
