The Ignatius Pew Missal is in its third year of production, gearing up for the fourth. We have seen a lot of growth, thanks be to God, and more and more parishes are choosing this resource for their liturgy. As the number of Pew Missal users grows, I want to use this blog to its full potential!
Before moving on, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Paul Senz, and I am a new Ignatius Press employee as of June 2017. My role is twofold: I am the Sales Manager and jack-of-all-trades for the Ignatius Pew Missal, and the Diocesan Consultant for Ignatius Press Religious Education. It has been a whirlwind couple of months so far, and there is no shortage of things to do. One of the most important things to me, however, was to get this blog up and running again.
This blog is a terrific opportunity for edification and discussion in regards to matters liturgical and theological. I would love for this to be a resource for liturgists, music directors, musicians, pastors, catechists, or anyone interested in the Sacred Liturgy.
I will be writing most of the posts myself. In addition to my work with Ignatius Press, I frequently write for many Catholic sites and publications, and am a regular contributor to Catholic World Report (which is an Ignatius Press publication), Our Sunday Visitor Newsweekly, the UK’s Catholic Herald, Catholic News Service, the National Catholic Register, The Priest Magazine, and others. I am excited about the opportunity to bring my gifts as a writer to this blog, and I will be inviting a number of talented guest writers to provide their own insights on this page.
Today is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It seemed like a fitting date for the Ignatius Press Pew Missal blog to begin its new life, and we will take Our Blessed Mother as our patroness.
Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!
