The Liturgical Music Institute is a five-day comprehensive program that offers musical, liturgical and pastoral formation to both new and experienced liturgical musicians. Participants take part in a ten hour liturgical theology course as well as applied music workshops in organ, voice, guitar, composition, music theory or conducting and plenum sessions that focus on specific pastoral dimensions of liturgical music ministry. Participants will also attend daily spiritual conferences, morning and evening prayer and daily Mass. In addition to the varied workshops and presentations, they will interact with other liturgical musicians from around the country to share ideas, concerns and best practices. This year, a Campus Ministry track, led by Steven Warner, has been added to the Institute.
This year’s Institute, which runs from July 24 to 29, 2016, will be led by well-known and respected faculty members: Rev. Paul Colloton, OSFS, D.Min, Rory Cooney, Frank Crosio, Msgr. Joseph DeGrocco, Christopher Ferraro, Susan Hugelmeyer, Keith Kalemba, Lisa Kelly, John Miller and Steven Warner. The principal sponsor of the Liturgical Music Institute is World Library Publications, the music and liturgy division of J.S. Paluch.

Liturgies will be held in the historic monastic chapel with its three manual E.M. Skinner organ. Classrooms and meeting rooms are equipped with state of the art technology.
