All musicians will receive a special blessing at all Masses November 19th & 20th
Creator God, You hear us, our words in prayer, our silent thoughts and pleas and each note or melody we sing and play. May our praises connect with heaven and unite our hearts with the sound of eternity. Lord, may the gifts of our voices and melodies of our instruments move with the work of your Holy Spirit. May we bring light into dark places, restore hope and vision to all who are oppressed, and well-being and health to all those who suffer. Lord, we give you our worship. May it be a platform for you, Father God, to touch our lives afresh and build your church. Amen.

Did you know that we’re in a national 3-year Eucharistic Revival? The National Eucharistic Revival is the joyful, expectant, grassroots response of the entire Catholic Church in the United States to the divine invitation of re-centering our lives on the Real Presence of the Eucharist. This three-year initiative aims to inspire, educate, and unite. In a world where not many people know Jesus intimately, the revival is meant to show everyone what wonders the True Presence of Jesus can do to heal the soul. Jesus needs each one of us to be his hands and feet throughout this Eucharistic Revival. One way that you can participate is by attending Eucharistic Adoration.
As we enter into in November we will begin programming a blend of Psalm arrangements from different composers. Please check the music schedule carefully since everything will not come from The Lyric Psalter collection anymore.
