St Aloysius Choir Needs You!!!

No experience is necessary and you don't have to read music.  Everyone is welcome to join.

As Christ came "not to be served, by to serve" (Mark 10:45), so too our choirs at Mass are servants of the prayerful expression of the Word through the medium of beautiful music.  Music plays an essential role into he work of God that is the liturgy.  It leaves an indelible expression on the minds of all who take part in the worship.

 

Dear St. Cecilia, one thing we know for certain about you is that you became a heroic martyr in fidelity to your divine Bridegroom. We do not know that you were a musician, but we are told that you heard Angels sing.

Inspire musicians to gladden the hearts of people by filling the air with God's gift of music and reminding them of the divine Musician who created all beauty.  Amen.

 

 

 

To Sing Is To Pray Twice!

For more information please speak with our Music Minister, Ellen Estallo, Director of Sacred Music.

 

Lord,
hear our requests. Through the intercession of St. Cecilia, please grant what we ask. Amen.

 

 

 

          

 

 
 
             
 

 

 The Musician's Prayer

Oh Lord, please bless this music
that it might glorify your name.

May the talent that you have
bestowed upon me
be used only to serve you.

Let this music be a witness
to your majesty and love,
and remind us
that you are always watching,
and listening,
from your throne above.

May your presence and beauty
be found in every note,
and may the words that are sung
reach the hearts of your people
so they will draw closer to you.

May your Spirit guide us
through every measure
so that we might be
the instruments of your peace,
and proclaim your glory
with glad voices.

 

Prayer to St. Cecilia
Patroness of Musicians


O glorious saint, who chose to die instead of denying your King, we pray you please to help us as His fair praise we sing. We lift our hearts in joyous song to honor Him this way. And while we sing, remembering, to sing is to doubly pray.

At once in our hearts and in our tongues we offer double prayer sent heavenward on winged notes to praise God dwelling there. While in our hearts and tongues we try with song to praise God twice, we ask dear saint, to help us be united close to Christ!    Amen.
