Welcome to Music Ministry
Music is integral to the Liturgy. All Sunday Masses at St Lawrence are celebrated with music. The only audience is God and all members of the Assembly are expected to sing their praise to God. In order that this may be more easily achieved, some members offer to give time for rehearsal and take on a responsibility for supporting the song of God’s people. There are several opportunities for singers and instrumentalists at every Mass for you to explore a ministry of service through music. The most popular opportunity is the Parish Choir.
The Parish Choir supports the singing at 11am Mass every Sunday (September-June) and welcomes anyone who enjoys praising God in song. Members are of all ages, male and female. Semester membership for students is also welcomed. Rehearsals will normally be on Wednesday evenings (7:15-9:00pm) in the rehearsal room in the church.
Don’t be put off if you can’t read music ... you’ll pick it up anyway! If you are interested in trying us out before making a commitment, why not discuss with Philip Jakob, our Director of Music, when might be the most appropriate time to come along.
God has undoubtedly given you a voice. This may be the voice of an apprentice angel. Please offer it to us and, thereby, back to God!
