The Ministry of the Congregation
St. Augustine said "He who sings, prays twice."
Congregational singing does not enjoy the long tradition in the Catholic Church as can be found with our Protestant friends. Therefore is is all the more important that we as practicing Catholics participate fully in the liturgy as we obey the exhortation of the psalmist to "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord."
As congregants sing with joy, so then does that joy inhabit the space of worship, uplift the priest as he celebrates, and strengthen the Body of Christ as we are one in spirit and in voice. Congregational singing enlivens the liturgy and takes us to the throne of God.
ALL CHOIRS ON SUMMER BREAK
Our choir members have devoted countless hours in service to prepare and lead music at our Masses since last September and are now on a well deserved summer break.
We will begin rehearsals for all choirs (see info below) after Labor Day.
