Music Ministry
As the old saying goes, when you sing you pray twice. The most important word in that sentence is “pray.” Each song in a Mass is a prayer, it is another medium by which we can pray, give reverence and connect to God. Being at Mass is an act of participation, saying the prayers and singing (or praying) the music in a liturgy helps each of us to connect more with the Lord.

Music ministry’s role is simply to be facilitators of that connection. We guide and encourage the singing of prayer. We embrace those moments when a song says everything that someone is feeling in that moment. That connection is tangible and moving. The blessings bestowed in those moments are why we do what we do.
