SJN – Sweet Joyful Noise!
Did you know that the role of music in the Church is to serve the needs of the Liturgy? To help the assembly join themselves with the action of Christ in the Liturgy? To give voice to the gift of faith?
Music meets the needs of the Liturgy… by equipping the members of the Assembly to act as the primary musicians in the Liturgy.
Music helps the Assembly join themselves with the action of Christ… by helping them to lift up the prayers and responses that are appropriate to them in the Liturgy.
Music gives voice to the gift of faith… by helping the Assembly join together their anthems of praise to our Lord Jesus Christ during the Liturgy.
If you love to sing, come join us in one of our choirs as we lift our songs of praise to our Lord Jesus Christ! The benefits are Out of this World!
