Rev. Michael Driscoll, associate professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame, was elected an officer and president-elect of the Catholic Academy of Liturgy at its annual meeting in Milwaukee last month.

The Catholic Academy of Liturgy is an organization of Catholic professionals from the United States and Canada trained in the disciplines of liturgy, music and related studies.

Father Driscoll, a priest from the diocese of Helena in Montana, joined the Notre Dame theology faculty in 1994. In addition to his scholarship in the areas of liturgy and sacramental theology, he has been active in pastoral ministry, working as choir director of the Helena Cathedral and as a liturgical consultant throughout the country.

The founding director of Notre Dame’s master of sacred music program, Father Driscoll directs the undergraduate minor in liturgical music ministry and the University’s annual Summer Song program for the renewal of pastoral musicians. He also serves as an advisor to the Bishops’ Committee on the Liturgy, a standing committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
