Music Ministry

“The importance of song in our celebration of Liturgy cannot be overstated; it sets the tone throughout our worship. It begins with our gathering song and unites us as a holy people. Song has the power to unite us in the mystery of Christ’s presence in the Eucharist. If one person chooses not to sing, then we cannot all be united as a congregation.” – Bishop Joseph A. Fiorenza
