Liturgical Music cum Training Seminar
Aug. 15, 2013
A Liturgical Music cum Training Seminar with live Demos was held at St Joseph’s Church, Mira Road, for the Mira-Bhayander Deanery, on August 9, 2013, under the aegis of the Archdiocesan Liturgy Committee. This initiative was undertaken by the Parish Priest, Fr. Dominic Vas ocd, who welcomed the team.
The seminar conducted by the Archdiocesan Liturgy Team gave an insightful glimpse into the mind of the Church concerning Liturgy in general and Church music in particular. Fr. Christopher Pereira explained the spirituality of the Eucharist, and how the different liturgical ministries like the Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and Choirs have an important role in facilitating a prayerful experience for the congregation. Dr. Valerie D’Souza pointed out that the Eucharistic celebration could be made more meaningful and centred around the Paschal Mystery of Christ.
Fr. Alban D’Souza explained the role of Music in the Liturgy by giving several demonstrations on both the guitar which he played and on the keyboards played by Mr. Clinton. He explained the technicalities of using musical instruments and how they can be used to enhance the spiritual experience of the Eucharist. Fr. Roshan, thanked the team for this enriching, vibrant and interactive seminar.
