Singing and Music

 

The harmony of signs (song, music, words, and actions) is all the more expressive and fruitful when expressed in the cultural richness of the People of God who celebrate.25 Hence "religious singing by the faithful is to be intelligently fostered so that in devotions and sacred exercises as well as in liturgical services," in conformity with the Church's norms, "the voices of the faithful may be heard." But "the texts intended to be sung must always be in conformity with Catholic doctrine. Indeed they should be drawn chiefly from the Sacred Scripture and from liturgical sources." 26

Joy Rivera, our music director, would like to invite anyone interested in singing or playing an instrument up to the choir loft.  We are looking for adults to join the 11:00 a.m. choir.  We rehearse on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  Joy is also hoping to begin a youth choir and/or youth band.  We hope that this group would do the music for the family Masses.  These rehersals are TBD.  

 

Please contact Joy Rivera at joymarie1307@gmail.com or just stop up in the choir loft after Mass.
