Sacred Music Retreat with Fr. Samuel Weber, OSB

The Liturgical Institute in Mundelein has information on its upcoming Sacred Music Retreat:

A Guided Retreat for Church Musicians

June 24th to June 29th, 2007
Rev. Samuel Weber, OSB Retreat Master

The Liturgical Institute proudly presents its second annual spiritual retreat for church musicians. Intended to combine theological and practical aspects of church music with prayer and meditation, the retreat takes place on the beautiful campus of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary just outside of Chicago.

Experienced retreat master Fr. Samuel Weber, OSB, will lead spiritual conferences on the theology of liturgical music by using the Liturgical Year as a guide to explore the mysteries of the Christian Faith. Using the visual art and sacred chants of the Church, Fr. Weber will draw from the liturgical books, Fathers of the Church, and spiritual writings of Pope Benedict XVI to help church musicians better understand their ministry.

Each day includes spiritual conferences, sung morning, midday and evening prayer, rehearsal for a retreat schola to sing at the Solemn Mass for Ss. Peter and Paul, free time for prayer, and confession and spiritual direction if desired.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to pray, learn, rest and recharge for your music ministry!with special lecture:

"Liturgy and the New Evangelization"
Most Reverend Peter Sartain, Bishop of Joliet

Bishop Sartain will also preside at the Vigil Mass of Sts. Peter and Paul,
with music by the retreat schola
