Music Ministry serves a wonderful role in today's church: to enhance the celebration of the liturgy, and to assist the spiritual needs of the community. Liturgical worship is given a more noble form when it is celebrated in song, with the ministers of each degree fulfilling their ministry and the people participating in it.[1] One cannot find anything more religious and more joyful in sacred celebrations than a whole congregation expressing its faith and devotion in song. Therefore the active participation of the whole people, which is shown in singing, is to be carefully promoted. The faithful should . . . unite themselves interiorly to what the ministers or choir sing, so that by listening to them they may raise their minds to God. [2]

Not everyone is called to the music ministry. It is a vastly different mass experience, but very rewarding. Our dedicated people are a special family unto themselves.

If you are musically gifted, we'd love for you to join us! Singers, instrumentalists, all are welcome.
