32nd Annual Conference, 2004

Music in Catholic Worship
June 14-16, 2004

The year 2003 marked the anniversary of two liturgical documents that reshaped Roman Catholic Worship in the 20th century. On November 22nd we observed the 100th anniversary of Pope Pius X's motu proprio on liturgical music Tra le Sollecitudini, and on December 4th we marked the 40th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council's constitution on the sacred liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilium. By emphasizing the integral connection between music and liturgy, both documents deepened our understanding of what "active participation" in liturgy means.

The Notre Dame Center for Liturgy remembered these anniversaries during its 32nd annual pastoral liturgy conference.
