Lift Up Your Hearts is also the inaugural conference of the recently established Australian Pastoral Musicians Network (APMN) and so provides a wonderful opportunity to renew our focus on the Council’s vision for the integral place of music in liturgy. A rich tableau of keynote presentations by local and overseas presenters, workshops, liturgical celebrations and social networking opportunities will be on offer, all meant to help participants celebrate the liturgical blessings of the Vatican Council and to take stock of the challenges that await those who serve in the Church’s liturgical and musical ministries.
The 2014 National Liturgy Conference, Lift up our Hearts, is an invitation to all lovers of liturgy, especially musicians, to gather to celebrate this great anniversary and to deepen our appreciation and understanding of the liturgy.
