SCL Registration Deadline Extended to Sept. 26th

Sept. 26th is the new deadline. 

Register here:

The Most Reverend Salvatore J. Cordileone, Archbishop of San Francisco, will deliver the keynote address: “We Are Bound to Give Thanks to God Always: Worship That is Right and Just” at the Union League Club on Thursday, October 1. And on Friday, October 2, he will celebrate a Solemn Pontifical Mass (Extraordinary Form), accompanied by a sixteen-voice choir, at the historic Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral.

Two days of scholarly lectures follow at the Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Center for Thought and Culture. Topics range from the justice of worship in St. Thomas Aquinas to the styles and hierarchies of Gregorian chant melodies. The Pastoral Track of the conference, held at the Basilica Parish House, will offer practical workshops for parish and diocesan personnel—everything from financing a parish music program, to liturgical preaching, to "unwreckovation."
