Sacred Music Conference in Escanaba

The Catholic Diocese of Marquette’s conference for members of the church to learn and study sacred music started Friday morning.

The second annual Sacred Music Conference was held at St. Joseph and St. Patrick Parish in Escanaba.

Priests, organists, and other members who are involved in music in Catholic Parishes across the U.P were in attendance.  The conference is designed to further implement Archbishop Alexander Sample’s vision of sacred music in liturgy.

There was an in–depth study of Gregorian chants, the use of the organ within the Scared Liturgy, and sacred music resources.  There was also a ‘schola’, meaning school, which teaches church members how to sing.

The conference concludes early Saturday afternoon.
