Formed in Faith by Singing
Singing not only expresses our faith; but it also evangelizes and forms us, little by little, to live as faithful and engaged disciples. How can our repertory choices for liturgy help to foster a well-rounded Catholic spirituality? How can liturgical musicians inspire our congregations to continue the mission of Christ and work for a more just and peaceful world? As we explore how we are “formed in faith by singing,” we will also mark the tenth anniversary of the USCCB document, Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship.
