Christ is Present in the Church
Sr. Sandra DeMasi
Many Catholics see the sacraments as a checklist of moments in their lives. Many come for one reason: to "get" a sacrament for their children, for themselves. Often their intention comes out of a "product-outcome" mindset. What do I have to do? Where do I have to go? When do I have to come to check off another sacrament?  Often this mindset sets up a cast with distinct and seemingly unrelated roles. The one coming to request a sacrament inquires as someone from the outside looking in, instead of persons of the Church - Koinonia - community, bearers of the tradition. Christians are made not born. One is baptized into discipleship! Discipleship is not a sacramental moment but a sacramental life, a dynamic action of becoming. The missionary mandate as found in the Gospel of Matthew—Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit is a directive not only to baptize but to "make" disciples. Come and let's discover ways to "make" disciples! Form disciples! Be disciples! The sacramental life of the Church is the song that SINGS A NEW CHURCH into being.

Balancing Ministry, Music and Motherhood
Every vocation flows from the font, including motherhood and the call to ministry. Catholic mothers not only provide daily care for their children and families, but are expected, now more than ever, to monitor how their children spend their time regarding schoool work, hobbies, entertainment, social media, and more, yet pastoral ministry often requires revening and weekend work and long-distance travel away from home. How can one possibly get it all done and done well? Join three pastoral musician moms with children of various ages, to explore the joys and challenges of balancing motherhood and ministry. All music ministry moms - and those who care about them - are invited to come learn new strategies and fresh ideas for keeping priorities in order, setting appropriate boundaries, and truly ministering within your vocation in healthy, effective, life-giving ways.

The music suggestions are for choirs of all sizes, voicing and levels of ability and are recommended because of the quality of the compositional craft and the relationship of its text to scripture and have received merit (or demonstrate the potential of merit) through use over time.

Why Do You Want To Be Baptized?
Grayson Warren Brown
We enter the Church through the waters of Baptism because we want those coming to be baptized to realize that by doing so, they are signing their child or themselves up to live a life dedicated to love, hope, joy, and universal family with Christ at the center. In these days of health crisis, of politics and of fear of the unknown, it would be good to re-examine just what modern Christians sign up for when we ask either for ourselves, or for our children to be baptized intot he family of God. This session will focus on ways all ministers of the gospels, including minsters of music might contribute their gifts to the sacrament in such a way that those seeking baptism might clearly understand what they are undertaking. A journey that must include loving our neighbor, as we learn to love our God.

God's Gonna Trouble the Water: The Healing Power of Music
ValLimar Jansen
Many people are familiar with the coded spiritual, "Wade In The Water" but have no idea about the biblical reference of the song. ValLimar Jansen will highlight the work of renowned musicologists whose research illustrates the use of music for healing, and will utilize empirical, scientific data and her own personal experiences to propose strategies for pastoral musicians to use music to promote emotional, spiritual and physical healing. Perhaps with the use of music, God can indeed "trouble the water" inside each of us.

Exploring the 2020 Revised Order of Baptism for Children
Danielle Noe
The celebration of Baptism is a joyful parish and family gathering in which the whole Church, the Body of Christ, welcomes a new member into God's family. As the first sacrament of initiation and the entry into Christ's life, it is important to celebrate Baptism fully and with dignity. With the promulgation of the revised edition of the Order of Baptism for Children, we have an opportunity to examine and evaluate our pastoral approach to this liturgical rite. In this workshop, participants will explore the changes in the revised rite and mine its riches, learning to celebrate it fully, especially during Sunday Mass. The prresenter will unpack the theological, liturgical, and pastoral principles necessary for planning infant Baptism.

Anointed by the Spirit: Priest, Prophet, and King. Baptism anoints us priest, prophet and king--priest to serve God's people, prophet to proclaim God's word by our words and our actions and king to lead people to Christ. We are living in a time that requires an urgent response by each and every one of us. God calls us to be conscientious in living up to our baptismal commission. The Body of Christ is hurting and needs us to step up our efforts to be that priest, prophet and king. Liturgy strengthens us for this responsibility. It is, however, important that we appreciate the implications and challenges so we are better equipped and inspired to serve God's people and proclaim a prophetic word which will ultimately lead people to Christ. What, then, does it practically mean to be baptized priest, prophet and king?

Mt 28:19). All the baptized, whatever their position in the Church or their level of instruction in the faith, are agents of evangelization" (# 120). Using her unique style of storytelling, music and inspirational message, ValLimar Jansen will lead participants through a journey in which they meet people of Scripture and Roman Catholic tradition who encountered Jesus at pivotal moments in their lives.

Fr. Joseph Brown
All God's Children Got a Robe: The Garments of our Faith -- Intended, Promised and Realized:  Religious Transformation and Black Sacred Song. Black theology is truly "liberation theology." The ancestor-composers and performers of Black Sacred Song ('the Spirituals') resisted the abject nakedness imposed upon them by enslavement by creating a sacred space through the sounds they shared. What they lacked in the material world, they created in their faith, their certainty of a world that was their true inheritance: the Promised Land, Freedom, Heaven. Naked, they knew God had provided a robe; barefoot, God handed them shoes; and in their sacred imagination they had wings, harps and freedom of movement. This presentation will explore how the collective transformation of enslaved Africans into a community marked by resistance, persistence, and transcendence, have much to teach all believers who struggle in a world, in a culture enslaved by fear, violence, polarization and a loss of hope. The water of passage is the water of rebirth and the sacred space where we can learn after that sacred immersion, to "walk together and not get weary."

Living Waters: Let Mercy Flow: A Prayer Experience of Scripture, Storytelling and Music
In a time when disagreements turn toxic and the pace of life is frenetic, it can be hard to recognize what our baptismal call means to our practical, everyday lives. This event will show how our faith touched every moment of life and how we Christians can take the heritage of our faith (scripture, stories of the saints, etc.) and apply that to the real-life moments when peace, reconciliation, mercy, justice and truth are needed in our everyday lives. Spend some time with Kate, Shannon and Orin in an experience that is meditative, engaging, humorous, thought-provoking and, above all, a true encounter with God.

Basic Chant for the Contemporary Musician
Steve Angrisano
Seamlessly integrating music with liturgical action requires a subtlety which is every bit as important as any raw musical skill. Chant is a natural part of the Roman Rite which by it's very nature allows the congregation to sing the mass. This workshop will equip you with a basic understanding of chant as sung speech, several basic psalm tones for use with the responsorial psalm, simple plainsong ideas that are easily integrated into any liturgy, and most importantly a good understanding of how to effectively incorporate these into the current milieu of your weekend liturgies.

Daily Discipleship: Real-world solutions for the Interpersonal Challenges of Parish Service
Lorraine Hess
People who work in liturgy need a well-stocked interpersonal-relations toolbox to be true pastoral leaders. Much like those who work in human resources, music ministers must communicate effectively with clergy, other ministers, and choir members - but always in the context of our mission of discipleship, and love of God and neighbor. This workshop explores proven techniques for getting along with other members of parish leadership, finding patience when working with volunteers, and tips for avoiding burnout. Through storytelling, case studies, scripture, humor, and music (of course), you will discover helpful new ways to deal with the interpersonal challenges of parish service.

Light of the World: Handing On Our Faith. Consider the Easter Vigil. Envision the single flame of the paschal candle. From it, the People of God light their candles (just as our baptismal candles were lit from it at one time). The flame, divided yet undimmed, now envelops the darkness. As baptized disciples, pastoral musicians have a distinctive responsibility to "walk always as children of the light." Together, we will reflect on the ways our song has the power to overcome the darkness of the world and radiate the fire of the Holy Spirit.
