Parish Liturgy and Music Internship

I am not sure if the Society has a policy on the advertising of posts. But if I am infringing rules then I am sure someone will tell me. The parish of St John's Wood is establishing two year long internships, one to support music and liturgy, and the other to work with young people. I envisage the i...

Re: Bishops fix date for ending old music settings

The Society has produced a couple of resources to assist with this next step in the introduction of the Missal translation.
They will appear on the Society's own site very shortly, but in the meantime they can be accessed at http://rcdow.org.uk/diocese/liturgy/news/singing/

Re: Post Baptismal Catechesis

I think it would be more true to say that they see the importance of maintaining the small community as well as integrating. But the small community is experienced in the wider context too - especially in its relationship to local parish, bishop, and N-C family. Clearly they are not alone, as SC say...

Re: Post Baptismal Catechesis

An interesting phrase used by Francesco re POST baptismal catechesis, was that it provided the form for the continuing conversion of the initiates - a mode for engaging with their experience of renewal in Christ. But whether pre or post baptism,the important thing, and I am sure that Ian agrees, is ...

Re: Eulogies

That's been my practice and, at least as far as Eulogies are concerned, is what OCF commends. The difficulty - and I certainly have experienced this here, despite trying to make sure people are encouraged to moderation, is that if someone gets the wind in their sails, this is the last thing people r...

Eulogies

A recent discussion in Westminster diocese revealed a sometime practice of having the Eulogy delivered before the beginning of the Funeral Mass or service. The principal reason offered was that it avoided in appropriate eulogies being given during the Liturgy itself (these eulogies generally having ...
