In early October we had a wonderful workshop with Sister Kathleen Harmon, S.N.D.deN. who is an expert in both the field of music and that of liturgy. Sister gave us good theological explanations of the changes in the translation of the Mass in the New Roman Missal which will go into effect on the first Sunday of Advent.
At the same time, Sister Kathleen was able to coach our chantresses, organists, choir, and lectors, to improve our voice production and delivery, which is so important in our mission of preaching through the liturgy. The improvements in our choices and the quality of our reading and singing are already evident.
