Liturgical Music Institute

The Liturgical Music Institute, a 5-day retreat and educational session for pastoral musicians, is now a part of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM). It takes place at The Seminary of the Immaculate Conception, situated on 215 acres close to the Long Island Sound, providing a unique and tranquil setting for the Institute. The Institute includes workshops, panel discussions, and communal prayer throughout the week. Liturgies are held in the historic monastic chapel with its three manual E.M. Skinner organ.
