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 Saturday at 4.30pm 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.

For those joining in Mass from home, by making an Act of Spiritual Communion we express our faith in Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist and ask him to unite himself with us. This prayer was written by St Alphonsus de Liguori:
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
