Music Ministry Together

Director of Vocations Ireland, Margaret Cartwright and myself represented Vocations Ireland together with members of different Religious Congregations at Music Ministry Together summer school in Cistercian College, Roscrea, Co Offaly.

Vocations Ireland is an association of Vocation Directors of Catholic Religious Congregations in Ireland. We work to present religious life, apostolic, missionary and contemplative, as a life choice which is one way of following Christ and bringing deeper meaning and purpose to life. For further information, email; info@vocationsireland.com. I lead morning prayer one of the days and gave an input on Vocations on the varied ministries of different congregations.

Music Ministry Together (MMT) is a summer school for young people and adult leaders with a love for liturgical music and imbued with a desire to serve as ministers in their parishes, schools and communities. The theme of this year’s summer school was, “Make Your Home in Me.” (John 15:4). During the five-day summer school the participants took part in various sessions teaching and learning church music together, as well as participating in various forms of liturgy. There were opportunities for sharing the Eucharist, morning and evening prayer and taking part in Catechesis, along with organised activities and entertainment. 

The MMT summer school 2017 takes place during the first week of August in Cistercian College, Roscrea. It’s a great way of spending a few days of your holidays; I highly recommend it. Email; ian@musicministry.ie. or see their website for more information.
