Notre Dame Vision: Liturgical Music Ministers
July 17–21, 2017
Notre Dame Vision asks its participants: God is calling. How will you answer?
Liturgical musicians have responded to that call. They have acknowledged that God has blessed them with musical talent. They have cultivated and honed that talent through years of education and practice. Moreover, these individuals have placed their gifts at the service of God and the Church by choosing to minister as liturgical musicians.
“…based on their baptismal call to discipleship…”
Notre Dame Vision LMM is interested in forming the liturgical music minister, not simply as a performer, but as a disciple. This formation is a lifelong process. Just as one must never stop
practicing in order to continue improving as a musician, one must never stop discerning and seeking ways to grow in love of God and neighbor as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Notre Dame Vision LMM seeks to provide the liturgical musician with new insights and ideas regarding the nature of vocation and the process of vocational discernment in order to cultivate an ever-deepening relationship with Jesus Christ.
“…grounds them in a love for and knowledge of Scripture, Catholic teaching, Liturgy, and music…”
Notre Dame Vision LMM seeks to provide a scriptural, liturgical, and spiritual formation that leads to a fuller appreciation for the richness of prayer, inviting the attendees to appropriate these insights into their ministry.
“…equips them with the musical, liturgical, and pastoral skills to serve the Church at prayer.”
Notre Dame Vision LMM seeks to provide new insights regarding the unique path of discipleship of the liturgical musician in which musical excellence, knowledge of the liturgy, and pastoral sensitivity complement one another in ways that are fruitful for the individual performer and the life of the Church.
