Keynote speakers Lizette Larson-Miller, Dan Benedict, and Marty Haugen will lead participants on a journey reflecting on our rich liturgical heritage and rediscovering the ancient faith formation process known as the Catechumenate.

Marty Haugen, well-known composer and musician, will reflect on the use of arts, symbols, space and music that enrich worship. In her presentations, Lizette Larson-Miller, Professor of Theology at the University of Western Ontario and chair of the International Anglican Liturgical Consultation, will both explore models of church ecclesiology and connect sacramental theology with modern discipleship. Finally, Dan Benedict, Abbot for the Order of St. Lukes and former director of worship resources for the United Methodist Church, will offer a structural framework for the movements of the catechumenal process.

Pastors, seminarians, worship leaders, and educators will benefit from this amazing program that seeks to bring new vitality to communities of faith with a focus on discipleship and baptismal living. The event, which also features practical workshops and inspiring worship, will be held at the beautiful Bosque Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is a first class conference center run by the Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande, close to Santa Fe and other southwest attractions.

Scholarships are available for seminarians and first call pastors. Register by May 15 and receive a $50 early bird discount. For more information, contact registrar Devra Betts at devrabetts@gmail.com and check out the NAAC website at www.catechumenate.org.
