In today’s episode we explore “liturgical discipleship;” how we as liturgists and pastoral musicians approach our work with an eye toward evangelization, catechesis, and formation. Host Matt Reichert is joined by Christopher Ferraro, speaking about the ways we are able to meet the particular needs of our communities within the universal liturgical life of the Church. We also hear from an earlier presentation by Dr. Tim O’Malley, sharing his thoughts about the critical contributions liturgists and pastoral musicians can make to the new evangelization.
