June 25-27, 2015 – Las Cruces, NM
The Hispanic Pastoral Musicians Conference is sponsored by the Southwest Liturgical Conference (SWLC). In 1999, Mary Francis Reza hosted the first Hispanic Pastoral Musicians Conference in Albuquerque with great success. The SWLC decided to sponsor a similar conference every other summer.
The purpose of the conference is to provide professional and pastoral opportunities for music ministers who serve in Spanish speaking or bi-lingual communities. Through speakers and workshop presenters, participants learn more about the Catholic liturgy, improve their knowledge and skills for music ministry, learn new music from accomplished composers and gain renewed enthusiasm for excellence in their ministry. A significant number of presentations are in Spanish, but English presentations are also provided.
Please REGISTER NOW and remind your pastoral associates, music ministers, liturgical ministers, and catechists, especially the RCIA catechists, to register now as well. More information and electronic registration can be found at www.facebook.com/SWLitConf and www.swlc.org or www.dioceseoflascruces.org.
There is also a Thursday afternoon special session for pastors, parish administrators and music ministry leaders starting with lunch. Clergy should not want to miss this and all of the other wonderful opportunites of the Conference. Come be a part of “Singing As Church!”
