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.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
.
Yesterday’s dead,
Tomorrow’s unborn,
So there’s nothing to fear
And nothing to mourn.
For all that is past
And all that has been
Can never return
To be lived once again.
And what lies ahead
Or the things that will be
Are still in God’s hands
So it is not up to me
To live in the future
That is God’s great unknown,
For the past and the present
God claims for His own.
So all I need do
Is to live for Today
And trust God to show me
The truth and the way.
For it’s only the memory
Of things that have been
And expecting tomorrow
To bring trouble again
That fills my today,
Which God wants to bless,
With uncertain fears
And borrowed distress.
For all I need live for
Is this one little minute,
For life’s here and now
And eternity’s in it.
.
