Presented by Dr Michael O’Connor, Senior Lecturer, St. Michael’s College
In the context of Christian worship, music is often said to be a "servant of the text" (or a "servant of the rite"). This is found across denominations and centuries -- e.g., among Calvinist reformers and twentieth century popes. This presentation will first of all consider the implications of this assertion and then the surprising decision, at the Second Vatican Council, to omit it from the Constitution on the Liturgy. The presentation will conclude with some reflections on the consequences of this decision, which remain to be worked out in practice.
All are welcome!

Church and University: The St. Michael’s Faculty of Theology at SIXTY, presented by William H. Irwin, CSB, BA, MA, STL, SSD (Pontifical Biblical Institute) Professor Emeritus
In 2015 St. Michael’s celebrates sixty years of conferring degrees in theology. Theology has two communities it answers to: the community of faith and the community of learning. Without the church it’s the study of religion. Without the university it’s catechism. But to live in two communities without losing touch with either means continual adjustment. To chart the development of theology at St. Michael’s since that first convocation in 1955 is to chart its adjustment to a changing church and a changing university as they adjust to a changing world.
