Special guests from around the world are coming to this year’s Sacred Liturgy Conference sponsored by Schola Cantus Angelorum. To be held June 27-30, in Salem, OR, this year’s conference, “Transfiguration in the Eucharist,” focuses on the Eucharist as the way of beholding Jesus in his glory. Participants and Archbishop Alexander Sample of the Archdiocese of Portland welcome as special guest speakers Bishop Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan; Father Cassian Folsom, founder of the Monastery of St. Benedict in Norcia, Italy; and Bishop James D. Conley of Lincoln, NE.
The Sacred Liturgy Conference is organized by the Director of Schola Cantus Angelorum, Lynne Bissonnette-Pitre. The conference will include an opening night reception, twelve important and informative lectures, four Mass and chant workshops, four beautifully celebrated liturgies in the Ordinary and Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite as well as the Dominican rite, two lunches, an evening banquet, regularly scheduled opportunities for confession, and plenty of time for fellowship.
“From its modest beginnings in 2013,” conference organizers say, “this conference has grown into a premiere annual event with participants coming from throughout the United States and beyond. Our mission however remains the same—to educate and inspire the faithful about the life-changing realities of the Holy Mass, to encourage dignity and beauty in the celebration of the sacred liturgy, and to promote the use of sacred music according to the mind of the Church.”
Open to anyone interested in the treasures of the Catholic liturgy, the Sacred Liturgy Conference seeks to help Catholics deepen their understanding and love for the Holy Eucharist and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Registration fee covers the cost of reception, lectures, workshops, liturgies, lunches, banquet, coffee breaks, and educational material. See www.sacredliturgyconference.org for complete information.
