Liturgy and Prayer

The group has continued to develop music for Mass appropriate to the liturgical seasons, non-Eucharistic services and attended talks and workshops.

Syston Liturgy Group     

Members of the music group have regularly attended workshops arranged by the Diocesan Liturgical Commission attended by parish musicians from across the diocese. The most recent of these was led by the internationally acclaimed composer of hymns and liturgical music, Christopher Walker. He talked about a wide range of ways the ministry of the parish musician could be approached and improved as well as introducing us to new music.

Meditation Group
Our group meets every other Tuesday throughout the year and we usually gather in the Library.  We’ve been meeting now for over ten years and, like most groups, we have a small core membership and others who come & go from time-to-time. 
It’s a relaxed meeting; those who wish to, share the leadership.  We start with prayer, music, etc followed by a short-recorded talk from the ‘World Community of Christian Meditation’ (WCCM) established by Dom John Main.  We then meditate in silence for around 20 minutes, concluding with prayer or suitable short readings. 
Some of the sisters join us, they like to leave in the silence.  The rest of us then have coffee/tea.  Dates of meeting for the rest of the year below and you are most welcome to join us, whenever you can.

       All meetings on Tuesdays     Please try to come.   Vicki 01664 840083
