At the heart of Catholic Worship Online is a desire to rediscover and reclaim the worship of the Church in the expression of music.
The Church has a rich, beautiful, and varied history when it comes to musical worship, but there can often be a lot of disagreement about what “type” of music or worship is “authentically Catholic.” As a community of worship leaders, we hope to come to the deeper understanding that true Catholic worship is not “traditional,” “contemporary,” “charismatic,” or “contemplative.” Rather, it is all of these things and more — authentic Catholic worship, centered on the encounter of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, defies, combines, and transcends any particular “genre” of worship.
The goal of the Catholic Worship Blog is to bring Catholic musicians and worship leaders together, in order to provide them with quality musical, theological, and spiritual materials to help them grow in their ministries and to give them the opportunity to call one another on to deeper worship and leadership.
At the Catholic Worship blog, you will find:
Instructional video tutorials of songs or techniques
Podcasts and interviews centered on discussions of understanding and leading worship
Informative articles and reflections on topics relevant to worship leaders
Forums where worship leaders can come together to discuss song choices, past experience, and share their encouragement and wisdom with one another.
This ministry includes the following components: podcast, videos, eBook, speakers, musicians, community, & blog
