The Music Ministry of the Church of St. Paul the Apostle

The goal of the congregation at any parish is to praise and worship God with all of its heart, mind, and soul. Liturgical music has a deep tradition in Catholicism and the Mass. The Church has always taught that music and liturgy belong together. The function of the musicians (director, organists, cantors, and choirs) is to bring the Parish Community to prayer through song - as St. Augustine wrote, "To sing is to pray twice." Each week, we offer our time and talents in order to lead our parishioners in raising their voices to God. The Music Ministry consists of three choirs: the St. Paul Choir, The Young Adult Choir, and Coro Hispano. The English and Spanish volunteer choirs meet weekly to rehearse and to sing at Sunday liturgies.
