In partnership with the National Association of Pastoral Musicians, Liturgy Training Publications offers the Essentials of Catholic Liturgy—a series of three foundational courses to assist pastoral staff and ministers to gain a greater understanding of the liturgy.

For new pastoral ministers and staff, these courses provide a critical foundation of the Catholic Liturgy, helping them find new confidence in their roles. For experienced ministers, tracks 2 and 3 offer new insight and conversations into the Sacramental Rites and liturgy and Catholic Social Teaching—invaluable for planning and preparing liturgies for the modern Church. Visit for more information and registration.


NPM Standard and Premium members who register for Track One: The Basics of Liturgy will have access to Preparing Music for Sacramental Liturgies, a bonus seventh session specifically on music and the liturgy. To ensure registration for this bonus session, visit or call 800-933-1800 and confirm your status as an NPM member with our customer support team.
