Want a Healthy Spiritual and Social Life in Your Parish, and Stable Finances, Too? Take a Look at the Music Program.

Recorded at the 2019 CMAA Sacred Music Colloquium in Philadelphia, we discuss important questions for pastors and music directors as they look at the overall health of a parish and their parishioners. How does a music program encourage the development of spiritual friendships? How do choirs contribute to a friendly atmosphere in the parish? Can spending more money on a music program actually contribute to a more stable parish budget? Joining Peter Carter and me in a round table discussion are Mary Ann Carr Wilson, Charles Cole, and Fr. Robert Pasley.
