St. Cecilia festival of music and prayer

In the Varaždin cathedral the festival of church music is traditionally held on the  Sunday of Christ the King, before the feast of St. Cecilia, the patron saint of church music. St. Cecilia festival has been held since 2002 and brings together around 40 parish choirs.

This prayer and music program consists of a joint rehearsal of parish choirs from surrounding places and a light service with a solemn Holy Mass.

At the end of this meeting of music and prayer, involved laymen from the surrounding parishes receive the mission of the psalmists.
