“‘The singing of the Church comes ultimately out of love. It is the utter depth of love that produces the singing. “Cantare amantis est’, says St. Augustine – singing is a lover’s thing. In so saying, we come again to the trinitarian interpretation of Church music. The Holy Spirit is love, and it is he who produces the singing. He is the Spirit of Christ, the Spirit who draws us into love for Christ and so leads to the Father.”
– Joseph Card. Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), The Spirit of the Liturgy, p. 142
Music is an important part of the liturgical life of Holy Spirit Parish. With three choirs and over 50 musicians, our music program is thriving and growing. We consider music to be a form of exalted prayer, and it is our mission to stir the hearts and minds of the faithful into a more profound union with Our Lord by means of this sacred art. Our doors are always open to those who wish to “sing joyfully to God, [serving] the Lord with gladness” (Psalm 100:1). We invite you to explore the many opportunities for participation in liturgical music that our church has to offer, echoing the words of Jesus: “Come and see” (John 1:39).
