From May 28th – 31st, 2019 in Spokane, WA, Schola Cantus Angelorum will host their annual Sacred Liturgy Conference, an event that strives to educate the faithful about the realities of the Mass, to encourage dignity and beauty in its celebration and to promote the use of sacred music. Featured speakers at this year’s conference include Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, Dr. Nathan Schmiedicke, professor of Sacred Scripture at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary, ICEL director Msgr. Andrew Wadsworth and many more. A particularly special guest this year is His Eminence Joseph Cardinal Zen, who will speak via pre-recorded interview about the Gregorian liturgy in China.
The FSSP has been involved with the conference since 2016, former FSSP District Superior Fr. Gerard Saguto appearing as a featured speaker in past years. The FSSP will again lend its assistance this year.
“The Sacred Liturgy Conference has been very blessed with the competent assistance of the FSSP priests since 2016,” said Dr. Lynne Bissonnette-Pitre, executive director of the Conference. “Fr. Heffernan, Fr. Passo and Fr. Gerard Saguto have been invaluable to the conferences by serving at the altar in our Extraordinary Form Masses, especially the Pontifical High Masses in 2016 with Archbishop Alexander Sample, in 2017 with Cardinal Raymond Burke and in 2018 with Bishop Athanasius Schneider. In addition, Fr. Gerard Saguto served on the faculty in 2017 and 2018 and gave outstanding and highly favored lectures. We are very, very grateful for the support and the expertise of the FSSP.”
As well as the selection of twelve lectures, the conference will also feature Gregorian Chant and Extraordinary Form workshops and four Masses, including a Pontifical High Mass for the Ascension and a Solemn High Dominican Rite Mass for the Queenship of Mary. The lectures and workshops will take place at the Hemmingson Center on the campus of Gonzaga University, and the Masses will take place nearby at St. Aloysius Church and the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes.
