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.
Our music ministry is growing, and we are saving a seat for you! If you like to sing and feel called to share your gift, please contact us to get involved! No prior musical experience is necessary.

If you like to sing, I encourage you to give choir a try in the fall. I think you will be surprised just how rewarding it is! Mark your calendar for our first rehearsal onThursday, September 12 at 7:00 pm in the choir loft of St. Bridget Church. All parish musicians from all of our parish choirs will be there to prepare for our first special occasion choir of the year: the Parish Picnic Outdoor Mass choir.You won’t be the only new person there. I’m not going to judge your voice. I’m not going to call you out and make you sing by yourself. I amgoing to help you learn your music by providing you with practice recordings. I amgoing to encourage you to grow musically and spiritually. I know that you will find your niche in our friendly, welcoming group.
