Saturday, November 18 – "Go Forward:  Make Noise" Youth Ministers Workshop

 

 

 

Due to a low number of registrants for our planned Youth Music Ministry on Saturday, November 18, at St. Mark's, Hyattsville, we have decided to cancel the event. We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause.

 

We still think it is important to provide something in the future for our youth music ministers, and are open to suggestions from you about possible dates, times, venues, formats, etc.  What would best serve the young musicians at YOUR parish?  Please forward whatever ideas you may have to Henry Bauer, Chapter Director at hbauermus@aol.com.  Thank you for your interest!

 

 

Steve Petrunak, President and CEO of NPM as well as a nationally known musician and clinician, will lead a day of music-making and workshops for youth (grades 7-12) and adults interested in teen-led music ministry. We will explore aspects of liturgical music and the unique gifts young people in this ministry bring to the community.  Participants will serve as music ministers at the closing Mass, with Fr. Joe Kuchar, S.A.C. serving as Celebrant, and Msgr. Ray East serving as Concelebrant & Homilist.

9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
