FR. LIAM LAWTON WORKSHOP IN ATHLONE

Liam Lawton will introduce his New Mass of St. Patrick in Athlone at the end of this month. It will take place in:

Our Lady, Queen of Peace Church, Coosan, Athlone

Thursday 30th March 2017 at 8 p.m.

Entrance fee €10, which will include a copy of the MASS.

Liam will teach the new setting and so it is of great benefit for as many of the Choir to attend as possible. Also it will mean that each of the choir will have full copies of the Mass.

Please pass this on to as many as possible involved with music in your parish, choir, schools, cantors.

This workshop is for the whole region, as Liam will not be able to get to each diocese, and so we are delighted to have people attend for all around the west and midlands.

Again it is appropriate that approved Mass settings are used rather than some of the older settings for the Celebration of the Eucharist.

Please pre-book for the event by email on turlough.baxter@gmail.com or by phone on 090 6472088.Replies by Tuesday 28th March. All enquiries can be directed to Fr. Baxter about the workshop. Payment essential on the night
