We are very pleased to have as our guest speaker Dr. Peter Kwasniewski, professor, musician, and prolific author and lecturer. His topic will be “The Words of Our Lady and the Spirit of the Liturgy.”

After teaching at the International Theological Institute in Austria and for the Franciscan University of Steubenville’s Austrian Program, he joined the founding team of Wyoming Catholic College in Lander, Wyoming, where he serves as professor and choirmaster. He is a board member and scholar of The Aquinas Institute for the Study of Sacred Doctrine, which is publishing the Opera Omnia of the Angelic Doctor, and a Fellow of the Albertus Magnus Center for Scholastic Studies.

Dr. Kwasniewski has taught and written several hundred articles on Thomistic thought, sacramental and liturgical theology, the history and aesthetics of music, and the social doctrine of the Church. He has published two books with The Catholic University of America Press and a volume of music for liturgical use, Sacred Choral Works (Corpus Christi Watershed, 2014). His latest book, Resurgent in the Midst of Crisis: Sacred Liturgy, the Traditional Latin Mass, and Renewal in the Church (Angelico Press, 2014), is being translated into Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Polish, and Czech. Copies of these books will be available for purchase at the meeting.
