Music Ministry

Not Here to Perform, but to Serve & Lead

 

Yes, my friends, how can we keep from singing?  This is an opportunity to express outwardly the union in spirit by means of the unity of all of our voices.  Our music ministers are here for the purpose of assisting God’s holy people to give thanks and praise.  The elements, forms, and styles of music are created and molded depending upon the liturgical context of the celebration.  Music ministers are not here to “perform,” but to celebrate God’s reign in our world ~ to make a joyful noise to the Lord and hopefully to inspire you to join them.

Father Eugene Walsh wrote:

“The full symbol of the word of God proclaimed in the midst of the parish Sunday assembly is the assembly itself, sharing the living word of God alive in voice and song."  

 

The magnificent Psalms of David exhort us all to participate fully:

  • Psalm 71 - "I will sing of your salvation."
  • Psalm 145 - "I will praise your name, my King and my God."

 

We urge everyone to come to the table of the Lord

and participate fully through prayer and song!
