Under the leadership of Fr Peter Wygnanski, East Anglia School of Contemporary Catholic Music, aims to grow as a community committed to discipleship in Christ through prayer and praise and worship music and then to be able to lead others at events and retreats in the Diocese.
It’s called the Sibyl Collective in honour of St Hildegard of Bingen, herself an accomplished musician and composer, and who was also known as the ‘Sibyl of the Rhine’
Fr Peter said: “It’s a truly exciting prospect to gather together and nourish some of the great but hidden musical talent amongst the young faithful in the diocese, both to encourage and strengthen their own faith and to share the fruits of that in praying with others.
“A new chapter of contemporary Catholic music is unfolding, grounded on eucharistic adoration and music which opens up hearts and minds to the presence of God. Through this project, the Diocese hopes to play a part in this vision of the power of music to foster encounter with Christ in the sacraments.”
Applications are invited from Catholics (aged 16 – 30) who play an instrument or sing . This round of applications will close on December 10, after which successful applicants will be invited to an initial meeting in the New Year.
Subsequent meetings will take place every 2-3 months usually on a Saturday afternoon. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
