When you become a member of St. Rose of Lima, we encourage you to become more involved in the Parish by volunteering in a Liturgical Ministry. Training is offered for each Ministry, and when you are more involved in a Ministry, the Mass becomes more meaningful for you.
At St. Rose of Lima’s Music Ministry, our mission is to transform the art of music into prayer. We aim to elevate our worship and inspire the assembly trough music.
Sacred Music is an expression or sacred realms, and a reflection of the divine, as well as a fine form of worship. We praise God with our minds and hearts as well as with our voices and music.
To the praise and glory of God; we believe that being a minister of music is a calling, and as a such, we are committed to provide the musical training needed to develop and consolidate our choirs/ensembles.
