2006 Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Convention: Sacrosanctum Concilium and the Reform of the Liturgy

September 22-24, 2006
Hilton Kansas City Airport (Missouri)

Sacrosanctum Concilium and the Reform of the Liturgy is the title of the 2006 Fellowship of Catholic Scholars convention, to be held at the Hilton Kansas City Airport Hotel, September 22-24. All sessions will focus on the liturgy: sacred music, art and architecture, liturgical texts and translation, and the theology and mission of Catholic liturgy.

The conference will open with a Mass at noon on Friday, September 22, celebrated by Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City-St. Joseph. A message for the Convention from Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith, Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, will begin the program Friday afternoon. Archbishop Ranjith, a native of Sri Lanka, was appointed Secretary of the CDW early this year.

The keynote address Friday evening will be presented by Dr. James Hitchcock, of St. Louis University, and author of Recovery of the Sacred.

Other speakers through the weekend include Father Samuel Weber, OSB, Susan Treacy, and Father Chrysoganus Waddell, OCSO (on music); Denis McNamara and Duncan Stroik (on art/architecture); Father Paul Mankowski, Kenneth Whitehead, Monsignor James Moroney and Helen Hull Hitchcock (on liturgical texts and translation); and Msgr. Stuart Swetland and Russell Shaw (on liturgy and mission). The complete schedule is available in PDF here.
