Liturgy, Music and Pastoral Seminar - The Palmerston North Diocesan Liturgy and Pastoral Commission has been looking at a gathering in Palmerston Nth this year for musicians, parish liturgy leaders and clergy.   We have landed on an idea of a Friday-Sunday seminar with the working title: The Parish in Transition: A seminar on worship, music, and pastoral life.  Description:  The face of the Local Church is evolving. As change happens some practices and people are lost, and new people and practices are gained; the traditional is reshaped and cultural catholicisms are encountered.  At the centre of this encounter lies our liturgical and pastoral life which is often expressed in our pastoral-liturgical music.This seminar weekend will address some of these issues and give participants the opportunity to discuss change and develop an initial response.
Date: September 10 to 12, 2021  
Venue: Diocesan building Palmerston North
The seminar begins on Friday evening September 10 and finished early afternoon September 12th.
All are welcome.  Please mark your calendars and let people know this event is coming.
More details to follow at the end of May.
