A National Liturgy & Music Conference celebrating sixty years since Vatican II's Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, presented jointly by the Australian Pastoral Musicians Network (APMN) & the National Liturgical Council (NLC) of the Australian Catholic Bishops' Conference.


Mystery & Mission: The Art of Liturgical Celebration comprises a program of liturgies, keynotes, workshops, exhibits, sponsor showcases and networking opportunities designed to nurture and develop the art of liturgical celebration of mystery for mission.

The first day of the conference concludes with Sarah Hart in Concert, providing the opportunity for all delegates to experience the mystery and mission present in this young composer's internationally acclaimed liturgical music.

Information regarding Keynotes and Breakouts are included in the dedicated tabs in the menu bar above. They provide details of the presentation and workshop topics together with a synopsis of the presentation or workshop and biographical details of the presenter.

A brief description of the Sponsor Showcases is also provided on the Breakouts page.

Focused Discussion Groups on Thursday and Friday mornings provide the opportunity for sharing and discussion among the conference delegates on the topics presented and the issues raised across all sessions of the conference.

The Expert Panel Discussion on Friday afternoon will provide a forum for our Keynote Speakers and other experts in liturgy and music to dialogue on the state of the art of liturgical celebration in the context of the practice of Christian living in the twenty-first century.

We will start each morning with Prayer in a variety of different forms. Friday's Conference Mass at St Stephens Cathedral, Brisbane, will invite delegates to full participation in eucharistic liturgy. Thursday will provide an opportunity for delegates to experience the art of liturgical celebration of Evening Prayer at St Stephens Cathedral, Brisbane.
