Music Ministry

Praise & Rejoice | OLV Choir

The musical tradition of the universal Church is a treasure of inestimable value…as sacred song closely bound to the text, it forms a necessary or integral part of the solemn liturgy.
–Sacrosanctum Concilium, 112

Now that life is emerging, a moment of grace lies before us calling parishes to revitalize music; to return to fuller celebrations of the liturgy and fulfill the teaching of the church which requires that “Every care should be taken that singing by the ministers and the people not be absent in celebrations that occur on Sundays and Holy Days of obligation” (GIRM, 40).

Eucharistic Ministry

Faithful servants of the Lord

Usher’s Prayer

Lord, you make all kinds of people, even people like me. In your love you gather them all into your Church. As you gather your people this day, help me to serve them in a Christ-like manner, even as your Son served those who gathered about him. Make me prayerful and patient, helpful and understanding, and may I radiate the joy that faith brings as I serve their needs. Give me your strength to support my fellow ministers. May all who assemble to celebrate our common faith in the risen Savior be glad of heart for being here and for having encountered your Son in one another, in our priest, at the tables of the Gospel and the Eucharist, and through the ministry of ushers like me.
I ask this through Christ our Lord,
