The Church of St. Mary of St. Paul

Music Ministry 2020

Music Ministry at St. Mary’s

 

Daily liturgy, especially Sunday Eucharist, expresses the essence of our parish life.  Respectful of the Church’s tradition and in communion with all the faithful. St. Mary’s parish musicians strive to illuminate the richness of scriptural and sacramental experience, and enhance the beauty of the liturgy through their sung prayer.

St. Mary’s liturgical-musical profile is representative of classic and Catholic contemporary hymn, psalm and service music, and includes:  Saturday 4:30 p.m. Mass that is led by either by a guitarist/cantor or a pianist/organist and cantor September - May; Sunday 7:30 a.m. ‘quiet’ Mass; 10:30 a.m. Mass that is most often led by the choir mid-September – May.

St. Mary’s Parish Choir is recognized as a cherished and vibrant parish organization. Its members include those who have a love for liturgical music and service to the parish community. The choir generally rehearses Thursday evenings, 7:00 – 8:30.       

St. Mary’s 10:30 a.m. Mass Choir welcomes anyone who might like to share in its commitment to excellence in liturgical choral music! If you are interested in this ministry, please visit with one of the musicians following the Saturday evening or 10:30am Sunday Mass, or contact Mary Ann at 651.222.2619 X4.
