“The musical tradition of the universal Church is a treasure of inestimable value, greater even than that of any other art… [A]s sacred song united to the words, it forms a necessary or integral part of the solemn liturgy.” (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 112)
An integral component of the liturgical life of the Church, sacred music deals directly with both the glorification of God, as well as the sanctification and edification of the faithful.
Joining the choir also allows us to get involved in parish life, and to form a community of musicians of all abilities in the spirit of Christian fellowship.
Musicians have the opportunity to receive training in music theory; liturgical history; and the sacred repertoire of the church, especially chant and polyphony. There are many opportunities to get involved with the music at St. Theresa. Ages 7 and up are welcome!
If you are interested in joining one of the choirs, contact Emma Nwobilor, Director of Sacred Music at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and Bishop Talley’s Decree, masks and social distancing are required at all times when participating in the music program until further notice.
