An invitation to attend the Grandparents Faith Café online on Tuesday, November 8th
The Grandparents’ Faith Café will open again online on Tuesday 8 November 2022.
The CGA is delighted to announce Father Liam Lawton as guest speaker. He will speak on the theme of Remembrance.
Father Liam Lawton is well known in liturgical music circles. From Ireland, Liam has been composing music in the Celtic idiom for many years. Two of his collections have been used for two major television broadcasts shown throughout Europe. He writes both in the native Gaelic language and also in English in the traditional style. In his work Liam has given life to the great and beautiful history of Ireland, using the ancient prayers and traditions as the main source of his texts.
In his liturgical music there is a sense of great joy, with melodic tunes suitable for all assemblies, mixing both contemporary and traditional instruments. Working in the field of Celtic music ensures some instrumental music also, and some of Father Lawton’s compositions have been adapted for dance.
Father Lawton is a priest of the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin.
