A Singing Church - A Praying Church

Music Ministers' Evening Retreat


June 6, 2017: 6:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M. 

June 7, 2017: 6:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M. 

Fr. David Cinquegrani, C.P.


The ministry of music is the glue that binds together the diverse members of a parish community and of the wider church. When we come together for the celebration of our faith in the context of the Sacred Liturgy it is the music which tells the story and calls forth the message from hearts that are often frozen or dulled by the chaos of the world. Music can melt and reshape our spirits and move us from singing to praying, from musical expression to deep relationship with God and with one another. Come as ministers of music or those who "appreciate" the ministry. Bring your choir, your friends or your family to experience and rejoice in the gift of living prayer that is the ministry of music. The evening includes a delicious dinner, presentation with singing, time for reflection and the Celebration of the Eucharist.

Offering: $30.00 for NPM members, $40.00 for non-members. Clergy attend at no cost.

**Online registration is closed. However, there is still room in this program and we welcome you to join us. Please call 860-760-9705 to register or you can register upon arrival. Thank You!
