Greetings from cloudy Pittsburgh! It's like in the low 80's here, and on the bus from the airport I kept hearing people complaining about the heat! Feels like winter to me!
Anyway, I'm here for the annual convention of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM)
. This year promises to be very interesting, as we all share our experiences with the implementation of the new Missal translation. I'm looking forward to a lot of good instruction by some of the best and brightest in sacred music and sacramental theology.
I'll try to keep everyone up-to-date each day, so check back in if you like.
This afternoon things kick off with a keynote address by Fr. Ronald Raab on the universal call to holiness. Then I'll be heading to a breakout session with Fr. Michael Joncas about finding deeper meaning in the prayers of the Missal. Might be catching the Pirates game this evening... I can see the stadium from my hotel :)
