Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church
80 South 17th Avenue
Parish members are invited to gather and share their vocal and / or musical God-given talents leading our worshiping community in offering praise and thanksgiving to God for his countless blessings. Lifting voices to enrich, enliven, and inspire our celebration of worship, the Adult Choir assists at Mass three Sundays each month, in addition to Christmas, Holy Week, Easter, and Special parish celebrations. The Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00.
If you would like to help make a difference, and you are of a mind and heart looking to offer praise to God in this joyful Ministry, it is easy to do so. Give a “heads-up” to the parish office, or drop in some Wednesday evening. You need not be a professional singer or have voice training or such, a heart seeking to praise God will serve very well.
If your talents are tuned to a bit more contemporary outlet, this group may be just what you need to express your praise and appreciation for God’s goodness in your life. These talented parishioners assist at Mass on the fourth Sunday of each month to lead and support the congregation in inspirational worship and praise. Rehearsals are conducted during the week prior to that fourth Sunday. If you feel drawn to share your talent in this Blessed Ministry, give a call to the parish office, or give us a shout-out on Sunday Morning. We will be happy to get you singing along.
The children’s choir invites parish youngsters in grades 2 through 8 to take advantage of the opportunity to gather with other developing young voices in leading the congregation in song during the celebration of Sunday Liturgy. This is a wonderful faith experience for these children and it provides them with a firm foundation and comfort level for future involvement in Church life. Rehearsals begin in September (usually early Wednesday evening) and the children usually assist at the 10:00 Mass on the first Sunday of each month. Any child who would like to be part of this uplifting part of our parish life, have your Mom or Dad give us a call at the parish office.
The Ministry of Cantor has a long and important history in the life of Church Liturgy. In this day and age, the cantor is usually a lay representative of the congregation who serves to engage the congregation in prayerful song, and leads the responsorial singing of the congregation. In this important ministry the cantor serves basically as a leader of prayer through the medium of song. No extra special talent is needed, just a normal ability to “carry a tune” along with the willingness to learn the Psalm responses, and hymns in order to lead the congregation to a deeper and richer experience of worship. If you discern the Holy Spirit guiding you toward this important Ministry, give us a call at the parish office. Proper training and preparation will be yours for the asking.
