THE most respected magazine OF ITS KIND

The GIA Quarterly has been redesigned to make the magazine more beautiful, readable, and usable. Completely four-color throughout, the Quarterly features a new typeface and eye-catching graphics. The Sunday Preparation Pages are now easier to use to make music planning a snap. Each issue also includes hands-on, concrete solutions to the most common roadblocks pastoral musicians face in their parishes.
Every issue invites national leaders in liturgy and music to engage readers in a dialogue about how to celebrate parish worship that transforms communities. Writers in this issue include:
Christopher Ferraro • Rita Ferrone • Marty Haugen • Todd Flowerday • Stephen Petrunak • Judith Kubicki • Emmett G. Price III • Dolores Martinez • Gerald Custer
GIA Quarterly readers will still find their favorite Master Classes in each issue, along with reflections for each Sunday and holy day from editor-emeritus Fred Moleck.
With this new design we warmly welcome Nick Wagner as the new editor. Nick is well known throughout the country as a leader and trainer in liturgical and catechetical ministries. For over thirty years, Nick has been at the forefront of pastoral teaching, empowering countless ministers and catechists throughout the country, gently challenging all to a renewed understanding of liturgy and catechesis.
