Good quality liturgical music fosters effective liturgical practice and spirituality. This workshop taps into the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference’s recently published Catholic Worship Book II as a rich source of traditional and contemporary liturgical music that provides music for the revised translation of the Order of Mass, ‘Mass Settings,’ Rites and Sacraments, the Church’s Year (Advent – Christ the King) and Morning and Evening Prayer. Catholic Worship Book II is a veritable gold mine! Those searching for music to mark the Year of Mercy, and the Church’s core mission of evangelisation will discover treasures here from sources past and present. This workshop will ‘unpack’ the new resource. Come and sing, ask questions, and explore this parish resource. Admire the liturgical planning indices with liturgical hymns/ songs for each Sunday linked to the Sunday readings/antiphons. Encourage mercy by strengthening parish musicians to sing the Church’s prayer and thereby inspiring God’s people for mission.
