The use of song in children’s catechesis is an effective and engaging way to teach and celebrate our faith. Music increases learning and enhances celebration. In this workshop, celebrated composer and educator John Burland will share a variety of music that deepens children’s understanding of sacraments, the liturgical year and major Church feasts/celebrations. These “easy to learn” songs are rich in Church teaching and Scripture. They invite the use of prayerful movement and gesture. You will leave filled with the joy of the Gospel and equipped to creatively share the message of Christ with your children.
John Burland has written and recorded over 250 songs and published 14 music collections internationally. He is the Education Officer for Liturgy and Music for the Sydney Catholic Schools in Australia, and National Music Consultant for Bayard, Inc. During his extensive career, Burland has worked in a variety of roles in school and parish communities. He is a regular speaker at conferences and gatherings across Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and North America.
