About NPM Detroit
Our local NPM Chapter is dedicated to providing opportunities for learning, sharpening our skills, deepening faith, and most important, to get to know one another and support one another in ministry.
Finding time to just meet and socialize with our fellow liturgical musicians can be a chore all on its own. Which is why NPM Detroit’s Musician Spring Social has become such a wonderful event for liturgical musicians in the Archdiocese to gather and relax over food and drink. This year we will meet at the Traffic Jam & Snug in Midtown Detroit. The Traffic Jam & Snug makes the food from scratch, bakes their own bread, brews their own beer, and even makes their own cheeses! So we’re in for a good meal. The event starts at 5:30pm and ends when the last person leaves. See you on Friday, May 20!

Dr. Peter Williamson, who holds the Adam Cardinal Maida Chair of Sacred Scripture at Sacred Heart Major Seminary, shared meaningful insight and knowledge during our Singing the Psalms workshop last month. Dr. Williamson has graciously shared a few of the resources and visual aides used during his lecture. The “Categories of Psalms” chart can be downloaded below. In addition, Dr. Williamson has provided suggestions for personal reading and further study (see list below).
Thank you Dr. Peter Williamson for sharing your knowledge with the liturgical musicians of Detroit!
