Music Ministry

music-webpage2

The parish of Our Lady of the Rosary has a proud tradition in sacred music and music continues to play a fundamental role in our celebrations. Music Ministry invites us to bear witness to Christ and the gospel, by enabling those gathered to participate fully in the liturgy and reflect upon the sacred mysteries.

Through our shared song, we join with Christ in giving praise and thanks to God. In so doing, we become one with Him in faith, hope and love.

Rosary Parish Choir
Our Parish Choir comprises a dedicated group of singers and instrumentalists of all ages, who share their gifts and talents to enrich our worship. Its primary role is to support the assembly in the singing of hymns, psalms and the responses of the Mass. The repertoire includes traditional hymns, choral music and more modern, contemporary pieces.

Rosary Parish Choir sings every Sunday from September to June at 12pm Mass. It also sings for various special occasions and feast days throughout the church year, including Christmas and Easter ceremonies.

The Spirit calls each one of us, so why not consider joining this rewarding and inspiring ministry? Rehearsals take place on Wednesday at 7pm and new members are always welcome, especially if you play an instrument. Prior experience is not essential. For more information, please contact the Parish Office on 01-4965055.

Meditation on the Stations of the Cross
1. Jesus is condemned to death. Do I ever criticise others, blame others? Do I recognise my own fault before I look for the faults of others?
2. Jesus takes up the Cross. Do I accept crosses or burdens in my life without complaint? Do I ever load burdens onto others?
3. Jesus falls the first time. When I fall or make mistakes do I get up again or am I inclined to give up?
4. Jesus meets his mother. Do I recognise the hurt even unintentional that my life can cause to others especially those I love the most?
5. Simon helps Jesus carry the Cross. Am I always grateful to those who offer me help or who share a burden with me?
6. Veronica wipes the face of Jesus. Do I always recognise Christ’s image in others and can others see the image of Christ in me?
7. Jesus falls the second time. If at first I don’t succeed do I keep trying – do I persevere?
8. Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem. Even when I’m weighed down by the difficulties of my own life am I always ready and willing to help others and to put their needs before my own?
9. Jesus falls the third time. Am I ever the cause of others falling or do I comment on the faults or failures of others?
10. Jesus is stripped of his garments. Am I willing to deprive myself of attachment to material things to give more time to God?
11. Jesus is nailed to the Cross. Can I bear pain without always seeking instant relief? Am I ever guilty of causing pain to others?
12. Jesus dies on the Cross. Am I willing to die to my own sinfulness and selfishness? Do I always want my own way?
13. Jesus is taken down from the Cross. Have I a devotion to Mary in my life? As Jesus gave us His Mother from the Cross do I accept Mary as my Heavenly Mother who intercedes for me?
14. Jesus is laid in the tomb. Do I live my life in such a way that I can be confident the grave will not be the end for me but that I will share in Christ’s Resurrection?
