Liturgy and Music Resources
There are many online resources available to individuals interested in furthering their understanding of liturgy and music. Below are some links to Liturgical Institutes, Professional Associations, and Publishers.
There are four liturgical institutes in the United States, three sponsored by major universities (Notre Dame, Georgetown, and St. Louis.)
Notre Dame University
The Center for Liturgy, a national resource for worship at Notre Dame University, helps church leaders and parishes to celebrate God's presence in church and world and to connect liturgy and life.
St. Louis University
The Center for Liturgy at Saint Louis University exists to study and promote this most important foundation of the Catholic Church. Through multiple activities, we work to continue restoration and successful enactment of the Mass and other liturgical rituals throughout the world.
The National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM) is a membership organization primarily composed of musicians, musician-liturgists, clergy and other leaders of prayer devoted to serving the life and mission of the Church through fostering the art of musical liturgy in Catholic worshiping communities in the United States of America.
The Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions (FDLC) represents Roman Catholic Diocesan Offices of Worship and Liturgical Commissions throughout the United States.
