Volunteering: Music Ministry

It is no accident that there is an entire book of the Bible of psalms
or songs to worship God. The psalms and canticles are prayed each day in the prayer of the Church called the "Liturgy of the Hours." In the document Sacred Music from the Second Vatican Council we find that "The unity of hearts is more profoundly achieved by the union of voices." At our Masses here at St. Edward, we join our voices to the Lord as our two parish choirs and cantors assist us in our worship. The music ministry is open to all members, starting around grade 6 with no upper age limit. The only requirement is a desire to "sing joyfully to the Lord" (Psalm 100).
