Music


 

Music

“Music is integral to the liturgy. It unifies those gathered to worship, supports the song of the congregation, highlights significant parts of the liturgical action, and helps to set the tone for each celebration.”

(U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Built of Living Stones, November 16, 2000)

 

” To Sing is to Pray twice” St. Augustine

Cantors

The role of the Cantor is to make the congregation’s prayer possible through song. A good cantor must possess a strong singing voice and the ability to encourage the assembly to sing. Dedication and good musicianship are essential for this very important ministry within the liturgy.  A Rehearsal is necessary prior to each weekend’s mass.  If you are interested in becoming a Cantor, please contact Diane.

Voices of Light Choir

The Voices of Light Choir sings at the 10:30am Mass every Sunday. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays 4:00-6:00pm in the main Church and Thursdays 4:45-5:45 in the Parish Center. Attendance to one of these rehearsals each week is strongly encouraged.  The choir serves in a support role at Mass;  music provided by the choir assists the heart and soul of the people to focus on God. All voices are welcome. If you would like to join the choir please contact Diane.

Children’s Choir

Please inquire with Diane about our newly formed children’s choir which will be singing once a month at the 10:30am Mass.

 

“Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!”  Psalm 150:1-6

Bell Choir

We will be starting the bell choir in January. Anyone who has previous experience is encouraged to contact Diane as we establish the best time to rehearse.

Instrumentalists

All instrumentalists are welcome in the music program at Our Lady of Light.  The augmentation of the music program relies and depends on your studied musicianship.  If you are an accomplished player, please contact Diane to schedule a time to play together.
