The Office of Worship of the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown will sponsor its annual Liturgy Day on Saturday, October 15, 2016 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at St. William Parish in Champion, Ohio.

Entitled, “Raising Our Voices in Praise,” the day will focus on the role, function, and importance of music within liturgy.   Mr. Michel Guimont, a well-known composer and musician will be keynote speaker.  Mr. Guimont currently serves as the University of Ottawa Choir Music Director in Ottawa Canada.  He is an accomplished composer having published two complete Psalm Collections and other sacred compositions which are used across Canada, the USA and elsewhere.  His keynote presentation entitled, “The Unifying Power of Music,” will explore the importance and power of music as unifying those who worship and celebrate.  Three sessions of various other workshops will provide further formation for priests, deacons, parish staff, liturgy committees, musicians, lay leaders of prayer, liturgical ministers and anyone who is interested in liturgy.

Cost of the day is $30 per person including lunch.  For additional information or a brochure, contact the Office of Worship at 330-744-8451, ext. 304.  Brochures and on-line registration is available at
