David Haas, American author and composer of contemporary Catholic liturgical music, will be in Dunedin this October.  His best known songs include "Blest Are They," "You Are Mine," "We Are Called," "We Have Been Told," "Now We Remain," "The Name of God," "Song of the Body of Christ", and "Glory to God.".  In 1991 David was nominated for a Grammy Award for the recording of I Shall See God.

David will be in Dunedin on 11 October 2017 to do two sessions with us at Holy Name (420 Great King St., Dunedin).

Cost:  $15 per session

1:30-3:30pm, afternoon retreat session: 

"That You Might Have Life: Spirituality and the Call to Holiness for Pastoral Musicians"

Description: As liturgical musicians, we too often get caught up in the many tasks and responsibilities of our pastoral work, and as important as these things are - we need to nurture ourselves in our prayer life and our spiritual walk.  During this session we will examine 12 spiritual practices that can help us all grow in our faith life, and thus, more effectively center ourselves into the message and mission of liturgical music.


7-9pm, evening workshop:

"Music and the Mass: Step by Step"

Description: This workshop is designed to be a step-by-step, "walk through" of the Eucharistic Liturgy.  We will examine the four major ritual units (Gathering, Word, Table and Mission), and do an inventory of what the ritual moments call for in terms of music, and ultimately, their deeper and more prayerful purpose.
