The man who was Vatican doctrinal chief from 2012-17 will visit the Northwest next year.

Cardinal Gerhard Müller will speak in Spokane at the region’s annual Sacred Liturgy Conference, which seeks to educate and inspire people about the life-changing realities of the Mass. The group works to sustain chant and the extraordinary form Mass in the life of the church.

The conference, with the theme “Incarnation in the Eucharist,” is set for June 9-12 at Gonzaga University and is again being organized by Schola Cantus Angelorum, a Portland-based liturgical music group.

In addition to serving as keynote speaker, Cardinal Müller will celebrate a Pontifical Mass of Corpus Christi at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes in Spokane, followed by a eucharistic procession and benediction.

Cardinal Müller has been speaking at tradition-minded conferences across the United States and Europe.

In all there will be four Gregorian liturgies including one celebrated in the Dominican Rite. Masses will take place at the nearby historic St. Aloysius Church and the cathedral.

Other faculty members include Benedictine Father Cassian Folsom, John Haas, Dom Alcuin Reid, Benedictine Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God, Dominican Father Pius Pietrzyk, Dominican Father Gabriel Mosher, Anthony Clark, Kevin Clarke, Ed Schaefer, Father Theodore Lange, Lucas Viar, Alex Begin and Doug Schneider.

The registration fee will cover 15 conference lectures, four chant or extraordinary form Mass workshops, reserved seating at the liturgies, an opening reception, three lunches, coffee breaks and a concluding banquet dinner.

Nearby hotels are offering discounted rates for conference attendees. Aan early registration rate of $275 for laity and $225 for priests and religious is available through Jan. 31.
