All around Australia people are engaging in the Listening Process in preparation for Plenary Council 2020. There are some simple but important things you can do right now.

Praise and Worship Music in Liturgy

Paul Mason - Tuesday, August 21, 2018


Liturgist Bruce Morrill recently posted an article in PrayTellBlog about a Mass he recently attended in Slovenia where they incorporate Australian Hillsong music as part of the hymnody within Mass and then continue singing praise and worship songs after the Mass has concluded.

 

Does anything like that happen anywhere in Australia?
