The 2015 Cathedral Ministry Conference hosted in Minneapolis, Minn., is set to begin January 12-15.
People from 78 Cathedrals, 38 states, Canada, Australia and New Zealand will come together along with members of the Conference of Roman Catholic Cathedral Musicians (CRCCM) and Association of Consultants for Liturgical Space (ACLS).
This biennial national conference brings together rectors, pastors, staff, and volunteers to strengthen, improve, and appreciate cathedral ministries nationwide.
The conference is being hosted by The Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis, Minn., and the Saint Paul Cathedral in Saint Paul, Minn. The Cathedral and the Basilica are co-cathedrals for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
This year’s conference features keynote speeches by Fr. Thomas Reese, SJ; Sr. Dianne Bergannt, CSA, Ph.D.; and Fr. Jan Michael Joncas. Stunning liturgies featuring the Saint John’s Bible exhibit from Collegeville, Minn., as well as choral and brass ensembles will also be incorporated into the week-long conference.
