Seminarian Casual, the blog by students of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, presents a new series of podcasts each Wednesday where they talk with a guest about everything from the grassroots of their faith to the passions that drive their creativity and enterprises; in short, the things that make them who they are.
Below, SemCasual speaks with Father David Friel, a priest for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, who is currently studying to receive his Licentiate in Sacred Liturgy at the Catholic University of America. Our focus is a discussion on sacred music within the liturgy, its purpose, its various forms, problems that one may encounter in a parish music program, and how to prepare for the duty of properly choosing liturgical music.
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.
