This workshop is designed for directors of parish liturgical music and singers in parish liturgies. Come spend a week at the incomparable atmosphere of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, and prepare to be immersed in the beauty of liturgical chant.

Learn and experience how chant is “sung speech,” and prepare to incorporate English and Latin chant into your parish liturgies. Through the week, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the liturgies of Saint Meinrad’s Benedictine monastic community, as well as to form and sing in a chant schola.
