Conference of Roman Catholic Cathedral Musicians (CRCCM)
The CRCCM Conference XXXVI will be held in conjunction with the Cathedral Ministry Conference

In 2019 we gather jointly with the Conference of Roman Catholic Cathedral Musicians (, an annual collegial gathering of musicians serving cathedral churches in the United States and Canada. CRCCM both seeks and stands ready to consult with other liturgical and musical organizations in the pursuit of beauty and excellence in worship, for the spiritual and cultural enrichment of the community, and the greater glory of God. The 2019 Seattle Conference will be a special opportunity to gather Cathedral musicians with Cathedral rectors/pastors and lay ministers for a time of shared learning, collegiality, and networking.
