These international guests will be joined by acclaimed local presenters: Rev Dr Tom Elich, liturgist and Director of Liturgy Brisbane, and Dr Maeve Louise Heaney VDMF, theologian and composer.

It is rare to have expert liturgical musicians, liturgists and educators together in one place for three days of focussed input, so we encourage you to support staff members involved in religious education, music and liturgical preparation to attend this important professional development opportunity.

In addition to the high-quality keynotes and workshops, there will also be opportunities to participate in liturgies, engage in facilitated discussions, and build networks with liturgists, liturgical musicians and educators from around the country.

We invite you to explore the full program of keynotes and workshops here or on the Conference Website at A PDF version of the workshops on offer is attached to here to assist with making your selections.
