I`ve received this press release from the LMS today about the next training conference. I would have liked to go, not as a tutor or even tutee but because these conferences are very uplifting and it is good to meet other priests striving for the same goals and to take part in beautiful liturgies. Unfortunately I can`t make this one but I would urge anyone thinking about it to give it a try.

There will be tuition in Low Mass, Missa Cantata and Missa Solemnis and there will be streams for beginners and more advanced students. Tuition will also be given in the other sacraments and in Latin.
