Music Ministry

At Our Lady of the Pillar, we hold an aspirational goal of enriching our parish community’s worship experience through the power of a liturgical music program that responds to the spiritual needs of our people.

Music-MinistryWe learn from St. Celia that she sang in her heart, and sometimes with her voice. She has become a symbol of the Church’s conviction that good music is an integral part of the liturgy, of greater value to the Church than any other art.

Your generous donations help us enrich our music ministry with a director of music for the training and formation of our parish based musicians.  Please consider this ministry with your one time or ongoing support. We all thank you!

“Liturgical action is given a more noble form when sacred rites are solemnized in song, with the assistance of sacred ministers and the active participation of the people… Whenever sacred action is to be celebrated with song, the whole body of the faithful may be able to contribute that active participation which is rightfully theirs…. Religious singing by the people is to be skillfully fostered, so that in devotions and sacred exercises, as also during liturgical services, the voices of the faithful may ring out.”
