About the FOTA Conference


The Fota International Liturgy Conferences are held in July each year in Cork.   Saints Peter and Paul’s Church is honoured to provide the location for liturgical services associated with the Fota Conferences.

The Fota Liturgy Conferences bring together panels of distinguised international scholars on Catholic liturgy who, with Conference attendees, reflect on various themes with special reference to those highlighted as worthy of greater attention by Pope Benedict XVI.   Themes addressed in the Fota Conferences to date have included Beauty in Sacred Art and Architecture; Music and the Sacred Liturgy; and the Roman Missal.
