Restore Solemnity to Your Parish Liturgy - Right Now

The Church Music Association of America been receiving requests for scholarship assistance for the Summer Chant Intensive and Sacred Music Colloquium since last November. Thus far the the donations that have come in have enabled us to assist 90 percent of those who have sought help. But we still have a waiting list of humble and patient souls - most of whom have asked for just enough to help them make one of these programs part of their summer - and their musical formation. All are worthy candidates.

Our goal every year is to help everyone get to the Colloquium or Chant Intensive who has the desire to attend. This isn't always going to happen, and maybe its not realistic, but it remains our goal - that will not change.

If you are coming yourself and think you could help someone else with a gift of $20, $50, or even $200 or more, please make a donation today. If you are not going to be attending, but you value the work the CMAA is doing in changing the landscape of liturgical music in our country, one parish at a time, please consider making a donation - in time for someone to benefit from your gift this coming June. It will help make that individual's dream come true - but more importantly, it is an investment in the restoration of beauty and solemnity in the heavenly liturgy.
