    This is good news. Erie is only a hour’s drive from my home.

    Presque Isle is a very beautiful place, and the week this is being held is usually the high point of the fall foliage season.

    Do many parish types go to these or is it pretty much diocesan officials? I have not looked at the hotel rates, but just the registration fee seems expensive for parish staff.

      Jack, there is often a diocesan day near the end of the meeting geared towards parish liturgical/music ministry staff and volunteers. I’m not sure yet about details on the 2013 meeting, but I’ll keep my eyes open and reach out to you when I learn.

        The schedule is here:

        Tuesday seems boringly bureaucratic (I am a former mental health bureaucrat).

        Wednesday, the study day with all the speakers, looks pretty exciting. I had a course from Diane Bergant one summer at Notre Dame. She was certainly the best teacher I have ever had.

        Thursday and Friday again look boringly bureaucratic. What is the Mystagogy about?

        Saturday looks like the local liturgy day you were talking about.

        Sounds to me like they should have done the Wednesday program on the Friday and had Friday and Saturday for the general public, and let the bureaucrats do their things on the other days. .

    According to this: Piero Marini is speaking on the Wednesday and Bp Trautman is speaking on the parish day (Saturday).
