Registration for Fota Conference in July Now Open

St Colman’s Society for Catholic Liturgy is pleased to announce that the Fota X International Liturgy Conference will be held in Cork, Ireland, July 8-10, 2017.

The subject of the conference is Resourcing the Prayers of the Roman Liturgy: Patristic Sources, and will be explored by a panel of experts drawn from the United States, Germany and Ireland, among them Prof. Manfred Hauke (Lugano), Prof. Dieter Boehler (Frankfurt), Prof. Joseph Briody (Boston), Gregory DiPippo (New Liturgical Movement), Dr. Johannes Nebel (Austria), Fr. Jao-Paolo Mendanca Dantas, (Fortaleza, Brazil), and Fr. Kevin Zilverberg (St. Paul, Minnesota.)

Registration for the Conference is now open and may be made through the attached form.

Note from the editor: I had the great pleasure of attending the conference last year, and delivering a paper, and as you can see above, I will be doing so again this year. It was in every way an excellent experience; the talks were all quite interesting, and followed up by very fruitful discussions, and I was able to meet and speak with a number of lovely people. The liturgical ceremonies at the nearby church of Ss Peter and Paul were done at the highest possible level, full Pontifical rites accompanied by absolutely superb music by the great Lassus Scholars. (sample below). If you are able to make it to Cork to attend, you will certainly not be disappointed.
