The Problem and Solution

Source and Summit exists to promote and foster authentic renewal of the liturgy as the source and summit of the new evangelization
The Problem

The Problem

We live in times of crisis: confusion, polarization, and scandal. 90% of Millennial baptized and confirmed Catholics no longer practice the faith or regularly attend Mass. Parishes are closing and consolidating as the majority of US priests reach retirement age. The status quo is failing to hand itself on to the next generation. Meanwhile, militant secularism continues to encroach on our faith, our families, and our churches. If true renewal does not occur in the Church, the next generations will face an even more dramatic situation.

The Solution

The Solution

"The Church stands and falls with the liturgy. For that reason the true celebration of the sacred liturgy is the center of any renewal of the Church whatever" (Benedict XVI). The liturgy is the source and summit of the Church's life and mission. Without true liturgical renewal in our parishes, fostering spiritual renewal in the faithful and clergy alike, our efforts to renew the Church and evangelize the world will be ineffective. A new springtime of Catholic culture must begin with a grass roots revitalization of the sacred liturgy.

Our Plan to Help

Our Plan to Help

As an independent Catholic lay apostolate, Source and Summit is positioned to offer vision, leadership, and practical resources to inspire a deep spiritual renewal in this time of crisis. Many pastors desire to elevate the liturgical prayer of their parishes, but often lack the resources to implement it. We are a partner for parishes, dioceses, and apostolates in the work of authentic liturgical renewal, especially through sacred music. Our offerings will help the Church renew the liturgy as the source and summit of the New Evangelization.

Cardinal Robert Sarah

Prefect, Congregation for Divine Worship

"I am happy to give my blessing and support to Source and Summit which has undertaken the task of offering liturgical formation to parishes in a pastoral way and, likewise, of promoting a renewal of sacred music that leads to silence and adoration. I pray that their efforts will be fruitful so that more Catholics will be renewed in their faith in God and in their desire to evangelize the world!”

Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila

Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila

Archdiocese of Denver

"We are in need of finding ways to offer accessible formation and tools to parishes in order to promote a renewed experience of the liturgy and sacred music as a true encounter with the Trinity and the worship of the Father in the one sacrifice of Christ. I pray that Source and Summit will be an important protagonist in this important endeavor, and give it my wholehearted support.”

Bishop James D. Conley

Bishop James D. Conley

Diocese of Lincoln

“Beautiful liturgy is the summit of the Church’s life—it can be a source of profound conversion, and the font of all real ecclesial and cultural renewal. Efforts of liturgical renewal in our times need the energy, strength, and efforts of new leaders in the Church’s life. Source and Summit has the clarity of vision, good judgment and experience that will allow it to lead liturgical renewal for a New Evangelization.”

Tim Gray

Tim Gray

President, Augustine Institute

“I am glad to support the work and mission of Source and Summit. Its founders have taught courses for us at the Augustine Institute on Liturgy and the New Evangelization, and we hope to continue collaborations in the future for the renewal of the Church and the evangelization of our culture.”

Martin Baker

Martin Baker

Master of Music, Westminster Cathedral

"I am delighted to support Source and Summit as a resource to help bridge the gap between the present reality of many parishes and centers of excellence such as Westminster Cathedral. I especially await with much anticipation the Source and Summit app and expect to make great use of it in the future!”

Randy Hammond

Randy Hammond

Executive Director, The Amazing Parish

“The door to our greatest encounter with Christ on earth is opened to us in our parishes through the sacred liturgy. The Sunday experience of many Catholics today, however, is in need of being enhanced by the beauty that draws us into the life of Christ. And so, I am thrilled about the work of Source and Summit and its efforts in addressing this critical task."
