Re: Women in 'Minor Orders'

There is a certain 'confusion' of language in alan29's email. I hope the question marks mean its ok to offer some clarification (at least at the level of the theory of things!) If lay people do these things at present it is by virtue of their baptism .... why "clericalize" this lay right? [/b]It is ...

Organist contract

Any help available?

I am trying to set up organist contract but local HR is saying no subbing clause allowed if we have an employment contract per se. We could have a service level agreement but then organist gets no holiday or sick pay.

Any guidance would be helpful!

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.

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 ...
