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.
