Center for Liturgy and Music

Welcome to the Center for Liturgy and Music

Within these pages you will find tools and resources to enliven the music, liturgy, and preaching in your parish. We subscribe to the belief that worship is the first priority of the church, and that imaginative, transforming worship leads a congregation toward effective discipleship and into mission, whether across the street or across the world. So — whether you are looking for an answer to a particular question, need a consultant to come to your parish ordiocese, or want to take an online course in liturgy — this is the place for you.

Look for us on blogFacebook and Twitter.  We’re here to serve!
