Sacred Music Workshop in Mississippi, Jan. 27-28

Our Lady of the Gulf Catholic Church and the Classical Arts Foundation of South Mississippi invite you to join them for their first Sacred Music Workshop, to be held at the beautiful church on the beach in downtown Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. This two-day workshop will be presented by Dr. Jennifer Donelson-Nowicka, and will be a great opportunity for cantors, choir members, music directors, and clergy to attend presentations on the Church’s vision for sacred music and praying with sacred music, learn to read and sing Gregorian chant, participate in sung liturgies, and enjoy fellowship with area musicians.

There will be a special session for choir directors on Friday morning from 10 a.m. - noon. The general workshop registration opens at 3 p.m. on Friday and culminates with a sung Mass on Saturday evening at 5 p.m. The registration fee ($40) covers all workshop materials, as well as dinner on Friday, lunch on Saturday, and coffee and snacks both days.

On Thursday, January 26, at 7 p.m. Dr. Donelson-Nowicka will offer a free presentation titled The Role of Beauty in the Spiritual Life: Understanding and Praying with the Church’s Sacred Music. This presentation is open to all, no registration required!
