Summer School 2015

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Hi MaryR,

We have four workshops for the morning sessions which will run as three part workshops over the Summer School week. This should allow participants to get explore the topic in greater depth, but should still be of interest to those attending for just one session. Morning workshops will be:

Fr Tom Whelan - 'The Word that is Life' - a follow up to the keynote talk on exploring scripture
Fr Kevin McGinnell - 'Exploring the Lectionary' - title says it all!
Stephen Dean - 'Singing the Word' - focusing on hymns based on the Gospels, Psalms and other Old Testament scriptures.
Cherry-Willow Pauls - ''Accompanying the Liturgy' - using piano/organ and other instruments to the best advantage.

The afternoon workshops will be single sessions - a response to requests in recent years to be able to enjoy a greater diversity of workshops to choose from. Thus, the following will be the same workshop repeated over three days:

Fr Allen Morris - 'Engaging with Sunday scripture' - how do we help the parish community engage with Sunday readings?
Martin Foster - 'Why choose a Mass setting?' - what are the questions that should be considered when making such a choice.
Caroline Dollard - 'Liturgy of the Word with Children' - exploring theory and practice including liturgical principles.
Chris Olding - 'Common Psalms' - exploring settings of these and how they might be used.

Details are a little brief for this response - I'm still gathering some information from presenters which will appear on the website very soon.

Hope that helps.
