Parish Life Music Ministry
Brass Ensemble Rehearsal "…The musical tradition of the universal Church is a treasure of inestimable value, greater even than that of any other art. The main reason for this pre-eminence is that, as sacred song united to the words, it forms a necessary or integral part of the solemn liturgy.

Holy Scripture, indeed, has bestowed praise upon sacred song…, and the same may be said of the fathers of the Church and of the Roman pontiffs…

Therefore sacred music is to be considered the more holy in proportion as it is more closely connected with the liturgical action, whether it adds delight to prayer, fosters unity of minds, or confers greater solemnity upon the sacred rites….

Accordingly, the sacred Council, keeping to the norms and precepts of ecclesiastical tradition and discipline, and having regard to the purpose of sacred music, which is the glory of God and the sanctification of the faithful, decrees as follows.

... Liturgical worship is given a more noble form when the divine offices are celebrated solemnly in song, with the assistance of sacred ministers and the active participation of the people.” (1)

St. Philip has a rich legacy of music and musicians who have enriched worship with their gifts. We welcome those who wish to assist, by the ministry of music, the enhancement of the liturgy and the leading of the congregation in the celebration of the Eucharist and other liturgies.

At St. Philip there are many opportunities for ministry-as a member of either the Choir or Liturgical Ensemble, as a cantor, or as an instrumentalist. Reading music is not a requirement, but is helpful. For more information and further details, contact Director of Music, Dr. Mark Wells or Music Associate, Wanza Grantier (269-963-2584).
