Liturgy Classes

Last week we had liturgy classes with Fr. Michael Joncas.  Fr. Michael teaches at St. John’s University in Minnesota.  He is also a well know composer best known for songs such as “On Eagle’s Wings” and “I Have Loved You”.  We studied   the history of the Mass and the history of liturgical music.  Fr. Joncas is a wonderful and engaging teacher.  His often said phrase about specifics in the liturgy was “I just love this”.  It was very evident that he loves his work.
