Church musicians are called to draw others to Christ through the beauty of music. The Church has amassed a treasury of sacred music over the centuries, and the St. Bridget of Sweden Parish Music Ministry utilizes both new and old music from this treasury each and every week. Since every Mass participates in the eternal, heavenly liturgy, we strive to provide liturgical music that is worthy of this great calling.
We serve both parishioners and visitors by enhancing the prayer of our parish with song. We plan music that not only encourages participation, but also elevates our hearts and minds to heaven.
We also serve our music ministry volunteers by helping them develop their God-given gifts and talents. Through our rehearsal process, we not only refine our art in service of the Church, but we also prepare our hearts, minds, and voices to enter into the holy sacrifice of the Mass.
