MINISTRIES OF MUSIC
"When you sing or play in Church you exercise something beyond skills: you exercise your faith."
The main purpose of the Ministry of Music is to facilitate ACTIVE participation in the Liturgy.
This ministry serves an essential part of our common worship in that it is not something in the Liturgy, music is of the Liturgy. Music opens the celebration and gathers the voice of the assembly into one and introduces their thoughts to the wonders of faith and the mysteries of God's creative love and beauty. Music also accompanies the procession of the priests and ministers as well as inviting the people to listen with open hearts as it colors and drives the drama of worship.
Our Ministry of Music offers numerous opportunities to share your gift of music. We have 3 Liturgical Ensembles, two children/youth ensembles, a funeral ensemble, and an instrumental ensemble for special occasions. Psalmists and cantors are also integral participants in this ministry.
WHO CAN SERVE
Anyone who is willing to attend faithfully rehearsals for their choice of service is welcome to join. God has given you a gift. Be grateful for your gift. Share it with others. Seek forgiveness. Be reconciled. Live in Hope. You are an instrument in God's hands. The Church depends on you and your service.
