Great Books and God, June 7

June 7, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Can’t Sing a Note?  Find Out Why
Join the Great Books and God Book Club on Tuesday, June 7th at 6:30pm, when we discuss Why Catholics Can’t Sing by Thomas Day  (2013 Revised Edition, Crossroad Publishing Company), an informative and entertaining critique of liturgy in the Catholic Church.

Every once in a while a book is published that falls into the category of  “must” reading. Thomas Day’s, Why Catholics Can’t Sing, is that book.  It is “must” reading not only for church musicians and the clergy, but also for all Catholics who care about the liturgy. It is an excellent survey told in a clear style and an interestingly humorous manner.  Day takes on the secularization of liturgical practices that began, in his view, with the Second Vatican Council in 1962.  Thomas Day is the chair of the music department at Salve Regina University where he teaches music and humanities courses; he is an active composer and member of the American Guild of Organists.

Great Books and God is an “open enrollment” book club.  Members choose the books we read and can join at any time.  If you have questions, contact Dean at deanvaeth@comcast.net or just drop in on Tuesday, June 7th, in the St. Vincent Parish Center, 1010 W. Webster, at 6:30pm for discussion and light snacks.  Read the book.  Bring a friend.
