Singing is communal prayer. According to Music in Divine Worship, God, who is the giver of song is present whenever his people sing his praises. Through music in liturgy, prayer is given a more graceful expression and the unity of hearts is more profoundly achieved by the union of voices. –Second Vatican Council’s constitution on Music in the Liturgy.

St. Augustine tells us that singing belongs to one who loves.

Music gives a soul to the universe,wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. -Plato

Music Ministry is made up of the following:

  1. The assembly, who sing at all Masses: 5 and 7 (Spanish on Saturday evening), and 8, 10, and 11:30 AM on Sunday mornings.
  2. The choir who rehearse every second and fourth Thursday from 7:15-8:45 PM and every first and third Sunday after the 11:30 Mass until 1:45 PM. Choir sings at the 11:30 Mass on the first and third Sunday of each month. (The choir enhances the singing of the assembly, sings an anthem during communion, and sings at some of the special liturgies. The English and Hispanic assemblies gather  together a few times a year for a bi-lingual celebration of the Mass.

  3. The cantors who lead the assembly in song and sing additional prayers of the Liturgy. (Cantors rehearse at their convenience as needed). Other instruments are used along with the organ at special liturgies during the year.

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the choir or a cantor, please leave your name, telephone number and an area of interest at the parish office- (516) 767-0781- to the attention o Helen Mochwart, (Director of Music).
