Liturgical Music communicates a most profound reality: who God is and who we are before God. God's people come together to hear the Word of the Lord, receive Christ Jesus in Communion and to praise God in song. The volunteers in the music ministry use their gifts to lead the people during the Eucharistic Celebration with liturgical music that supports the readings of the season/day.
Descriptions follow for the various ways you can become musically involved. Training/rehearsals provided as appropriate... Sign up below!!
Cantor/Psalmist - Singers who help to proclaim the Word of God and assist in supporting the people in singing during the Eucharistic Celebration.
