La Crosse Diocese hosts "Liturgical Music and the Life of Faith" conference Oct 25-26

  • Sponsored by The Office of Sacred Worship (Diocese of La Crosse), in conjunction with the Liturgical Institute at the University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary, on October 25 and 26, 2013:
  • Holy Cross Diocesan Center, La Crosse – October 25th:  In the context of the present Year of Faith, this workshop explores the Church’s teaching on sung liturgy, especially in light of the Second Vatican Council.  It will offer practical training, methods, and resources for achieving the Church’s vision in typical parish life.  We will learn simple settings for the Order of Mass (e.g., Sign of the Cross, greetings, responses) and the Ordinary of the Mass (e.g., Holy, holy and Lamb of God), and will give particular emphasis to singing the Proper Antiphons of the Mass in English (e.g., Entrance antiphon).  We will give attention to the particulars of chant rhythm and to conducting and teaching choirs, cantors, and congregations to sing the liturgical texts of the Mass.
  • Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe – October 26th – 12:15pm:  The workshop will conclude with a fully sung votive Mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary with workshop participants serving as cantors and as members of the choir.

  1. Are they offering any instruction on Polka Masses? I've been wondering which polka is recommended for bringing up the gifts.
