The task of being a choir member can be demanding. The choir main function is to sing at Sunday Liturgy, but functions to lead the congregation in praising God in song.
The choir strives to enhance the sung prayer by singing in 4 sections, soprano, alto, tenor and bass.
The choir will provide music for Advent and Lenten prayer service as well as special liturgies for the parish that might include Masses for the anointing of the sick or infirm, Masses of thanksgiving to commemorate special events or anniversaries in the parish.
Our church’s musical treasury contains hundreds of hymns in many different musical variations. Our choir over the past few years has developed a repertoire of many of these treasures and has the ability to sing them not just in unison but has been trained to sing them in multiple harmonious parts.
The choir and its members must be committed to the faith and to sharing that faith through the music they sing.
Many people at Holy Trinity are blessed with beautiful voices.
You may stand near one of them in your pew; perhaps you yourself are one such person.
QUESTIONS TO PONDER:
➢ Would you like to do more than just follow along in the singing of our worship?
➢ Do you feel our worship to God should be enhanced with prayerful song?
➢ Are you concerned that there will be a choir to lead the singing?
➢ Are you willing to spend one evening of the week with the choir in preparation for Sunday Mass so that our liturgical celebrations are enhanced?
➢ Are you willing to share your musical talent and offer it back to the Lord just as He granted it to you?
