Formation and Consultancy for Parishes and Schools
'Liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fount from which all the Church's power flows.' (Sacrosanctum Concillium 10)
' Hello and welcome to my site!
This is a new venture for me.
After years of combining roles as a primary school teacher, Liturgist and Pastoral Musician, I have decided to follow my passion full time and offer my knowledge, skills and experience to your parish or school with the passionate desire to help us all become closer to God through good Liturgy. '
I'm a trained organist and I am the Director of Music at St Wilfrid's Church, Preston.
I have 26 years experience as a primary teacher.
I have a Masters Degree in Theology,
specialising in Liturgy.
I have given courses and led training for parishioners, ministries, school staff and pupils and now I'm here for your parish or school.
Most of all, I want to educate with an accessible approach, through visual presentations and an informal style.
This site gives details of presentations I have given over the last few years.
We can also discuss the needs of your individual school or parish.
Please do get in touch!

Christians' love for Christ
and for one another must be expressed in the signs and symbols
of celebration or they will die.'
