PLENARY COUNCIL 2020 – LISTEN TO WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING

 

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.

 

Visit the website www.plenarycouncil.catholic.org.au which provides great resources that will enable individuals and groups to learn more, pray for guidance, commence dialogue and subscribe for regular updates.

 

The Diocese of Wollongong have prepared a song for the plenary and made it available for free download at powerofthespirit.dow.org.au. Performed by Michaela Rose, Seth Harsh and Fiesta Mataele (members of the Catholic Youth Ministry in the Diocese of Wollongong), with John Lappan on violin, and composed by Paul Mason, the song can be used in Listening Sessions in parishes, schools and other faith communities. It also may be used in Masses for Entrance, Song of Praise and Sending Forth.

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?
