Pastoral Music

I keep Living Liturgy on my desk at the parish almost all of the time. It has become invaluable in my liturgy planning process. I also use this resource for lectio divina, both personally and to begin parish meetings.
Marc Stockert, Pastoral Associate, St. Katharine Drexel Parish, Ramsey, MN

This is a well-deserved update that I will find helpful in beginning homily and liturgy preparation each week, and I highly recommend that it be added to the pastoral team's materials for the Eucharist.
Emmanuel

I purchased copies of Living Liturgy for Music Ministers for all our parish musicians and they love it! I also purchased copies of the version containing spirituality and catechesis for our pastor, deacons, DRE, and myself. I feel that the addition of this resource has completely changed our liturgies and our parish for the better.
Anthony Gallina, Music and Liturgy Director, St. Wendelin Parish, Fostoria, OH
