  1. Congrats on your new video series. When you say “simple, easy videos to show you how to run a liturgy efficiently and effectively” will these be training videos? For pastoral ministers (liturgy planners) and/or volunteer liturgical ministers? There is a real need for training videos, perhaps with equal parts of “how to do it” and “why we do it this way.” I used LitPress’ videos Training the Parish Lector and Training the Eucharistic Minister until the material (and clothing and hairstyles) became too dated.

    I have before me a shelf full of LTP’s The Liturgical Ministry Series with various volumes including Guide for Lectors, Guide for EMHCs, etc. We use these excellent booklets in my parish, but I am interested in supplementing them with training videos. For ongoing formation, sending links to 3-minute videos several times per year may get greater traction than asking our volunteers to sit down once a year and re-read a 50-page book or show up on some appointed Saturday afternoon to hear a 90-minute talk.

    If I can offer any insights into what a parish liturgy director might be looking for in a training video series, please contact me at any time at 618-233-3500.
