Formation and Consultancy for Parishes and Schools
' Hello and welcome to my site!

as a consultant, offering my knowledge,
skills and experience to your parish or school or religious community with the passionate desire to help us all become closer to God through good Liturgy. '
'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)

'People in love make signs of love,

Love never expressed dies.
Christians' love for Christ
and for one another must be expressed in the signs and symbols
of celebration or they will die.'
(Music in Catholic Worship, 4)
