The Australian Pastoral Musicians Network (APMN) and the National Liturgical Council (NLC) of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference are delighted to announce that registration is now open for the National Liturgy and Liturgical Music Conference to be held at the Brisbane Hilton from 28–30 September 2023: Mystery and Mission: The Art of Liturgical Celebration.

International keynote presenters are Sarah Hart, one of the leading figures in contemporary Catholic music, and Dr Timothy O’Malley, professor of liturgical-sacramental theology and academic director of the Notre Dame Centre for Liturgy (USA).

These international guests will be joined by acclaimed local presenters: Rev Dr Tom Elich, liturgist and Director of Liturgy Brisbane, and Dr Maeve Louise Heaney VDMF, theologian and composer.

In addition to these keynote presentations, there will be more than 50 workshops on offer across the three days.

It is rare to have expert liturgical musicians, liturgists and educators together in one place for three days of focused input, so we encourage you to support staff members involved in religious education, music and liturgical preparation to attend this important professional development opportunity.

In addition to the high-quality keynotes and workshops, there will also be opportunities to participate in liturgies, engage in facilitated discussions, and build networks with liturgists, liturgical musicians and educators from around the country.
