Description

The Missa Gaia, or Earth Mass, is a contemporary worship service that integrates world music with recorded sounds such as the calls of wolves, whales, eagles and seals. It celebrates the whole earth as a sacred space. The first Missa Gaia was celebrated in honor of Mother Earth on Mother’s Day, May 10, 1981. The unique and mesmerizing music is by Paul Winter, award-winning saxophonist, bandleader, composer and founder of Living Music and the Paul Winter Consort. Motivated by the vision of a musical-ecological community, Winter has developed his unique "Earth Music." Come experience this unforgettable ceremony performed by John Coleman, S.J., John Flaherty, director of music and liturgy, and Campus Ministry.
