Welcome to the Church of the Holy Spirit
Liturgical Music Workshop – January 31st
Wichita area liturgical musicians and liturgy planners have gathered together to conduct a liturgical music workshop on Saturday, January 31st from 8:30am to 1:30pm at the Church of the Magdalen, 12626 E. 21st St. N. in Wichita. The workshop is open to everyone who participates in music ministry in their parish or institution as well as to anyone interested in learning more about liturgical music.
The idea for the workshop came out of a meeting in 2013 when several persons met to consider forming a Wichita chapter of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians. Participants agreed that it would be helpful to bring together more people first and learn from one another. Sr. Nylas Moser, ASC, Director of Liturgy for the Adorers Center in Wichita, convened the meeting and helped conceive the idea for this workshop.
“We would engage more musicians and build relationships,” according to Sr. Nylas. “Not only will we build relationships through this workshop, but we will enhance our skills and learn to know one another better.”
General presentations will be made by Fr. John Lanzrath on the formation of the liturgical minister and Jim Jones on church legislation regarding liturgical music. Breakout sessions will be held for cantors and choir members, for liturgy planners and choir and music directors, for keyboard players, and for guitar players.
Kitty Michot, Parish Liturgist at St. Jude, Wichita, will work with cantors and choir members.She is very excited about the workshop. “I really think it’s a good activity for people to come together with other musicians to see what’s available and what other parishes are doing.”
Shirley Wiebe is an organist with Church of the Magdalen and will work with Carol Pracht on the presentation for keyboard players. Mrs. Wiebe says she hopes the workshop will show the “Unity within the diocese.”
David Dondlinger and Nick Engels will speak to cantors and choir members. Tom Olivier will work with guitarists. An afternoon discussion panel will include Sr. Nylas, Jim Jones, David Dondlinger, and Fr. H Setter. Carol Pracht will moderate the panel.
Almost a dozen persons have been involved in the planning and the staging of the workshop. Everyone is looking forward to meeting new people and sharing their experiences and love of liturgical music.
The day will include prayer together at the very start, led by Fr. Lanzrath.Everyone is invited to this workshop. You don’t have to be a musician, or even a singer. There is no charge. A free will offering will be accepted to offset the cost of snacks. Come meet others who love the Lord and enjoy a Spirit-filled encounter. Sing of the glory of God!
