The Association of Church Musicians in Philadelphia offers a seminar explaining the Catholic Church’s liturgical year on Tuesday evenings, 7 to 8:30 p.m., Aug. 2 through Aug. 16 at St. Thomas More Parish, 2101 Pottstown Pike, in South Coventry, Chester County.
Part of the association’s Summer Enrichment Sessions, the series will explore Laetare Sunday, Gaudete Sunday, the meaning of the term “Ordinary” Sunday, how to use an Ordo, how the liturgical prayers and music are impacted by the seasons and many facets of the church calendar.
Jean E. Madden, director of music for St. Frances Cabrini Parish in Fairless Hills, will be the presenter. She holds a master’s in education from Rutgers University and a bachelor’s in music in education and therapy from Immaculata University.
Registration fee is $25 and is waived for ACMP members, but all participants must register. The fee amount is the same whether or not one can attend all three sessions. The fee supports ACMP educational programs and student awards.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
