Music has the ability to support learning, enhance celebration, and build a deeper understanding of our faith.
In this workshop renowned family educators John Burland (Composer) and Heidi Witte (Kids Liturgy) will share a variety of songs and strategies that help children learn the core beliefs of our faith. These catechetical songs cover a variety of themes including Scripture, doctrine and sacraments. This workshop will also demonstrate how the addition of prayerful gesture/signing can further enhance the teaching and learning process.
John has been writing and recording religious music for children for over twenty years. He is a sought after speaker, workshop leader and internationally published author in the area of music and catechesis.
John is the National Music Consultant for Bayard, Inc.in North America and the Education Officer: Liturgy/Music for Sydney Catholic Schools in Australia.
