At Our Lady of Lourdes, we are passionate about music as worship! In worship, music is an integral part of the liturgical experience. It lifts the senses and invites us to actively participate in the praise and worship of God, not only through singing, but through listening.
Sacred music has the capacity to express both joy and lamentation; it asks for mercy and forgiveness and offers thanks and praise to the Creator. When we assemble as a community, music does not merely support liturgy; music IS our prayer.
Come join us and share your musical gifts!
Music library skills, theater skills, organizational/planning skills are also needed. Email Veronica Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and areas of interest.
