Full Report to Come

We came to Houston just about two months ago-1,900 of us, gathering for the Thirty-Ninth Annual Convention of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians in the fortieth year of our history in a wondrously multicultural context. The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and the city of Galveston itself welcomed us warmly. Many convention participants commented on the helpful volunteers and hotel staff, who often went out of their way to assist us.

Look for a full report on the Convention Week in the November issue of Pastoral Music. You'll find details about who came to the convention and what we thought of the whole week and its various components. You'll find printed versions of the plenum presentations (downloadable mp3 recordings are also avaialable-see page five in this issue). And you'11 find lots of images recorded during our gathering.

It was a wonderful week. If you were there, the November issue will remind you of the week's highlights. If you weren't there, it will give you a taste of that convention . . . and, maybe, encourage you to join us for next year's convention!
