Music Ministry

Music Ministry

My lips will shout for joy, when I sing praises to you; my soul also, which you have redeemed. – Psalm 71:23

Music is integral to the celebration of any liturgical event. The voice of the assembly is the primary voice in any liturgy. Singing unifies and deepens our communal prayer. Singing together, we become one body in Christ.

The gift of music is a treasure to be shared. Our parish has a wide variety of musical experiences for parishioners of all ages. We are constantly welcoming new members to our ensembles. Whether you play an instrumentalist of any kind or would like to lend your voice, you can be sure that you will be joining people with whom you will share many wonderful moments of making music and lively fellowship.

“He who sings, prays twice.” St Augustine of Hippo

OLHC Gospel Group

OLHC  Gospel Group  is a music ministry serving at the 10h30 Holy Mass on Sundays providing impassioned rhythmic spiritual music.

Our primary function is to uplift and encourage the participation of the whole assembly by leading the Liturgy in song in accordance with the Roman Catholic Pastoral Instruction to the Order of Mass.  We try to ensure that, in choosing music, we fulfil the purpose of the Mass.

In this way we aim to enrich the celebration of Holy Mass through song, lead the congregation in praise and worship and provide an avenue through which the whole assembly can be an integral part of the Mass.  This is facilitated by the operation of the OCCD by Mike Noone. Our ethos is to maintain discipline in the Order of the Mass but yet be passionately moved by the Spirit and convey this elation in Christ to the whole assembly.

The Gospel Group was started in 1990 by the late Fr. George Gallagher SDB who recognised the need to enliven the music ministry for the parish youth.  The group was initially known as the Folk group but had a change of name as requested by one of our younger members.  This year (2020) the group celebrates 30 years of ministry.

Our current membership stands at 18 but this number is ever-changing as the Holy Spirit moves. All our members are valued and free to give input so that we reach consensus on what is best for the group as a whole.  We are currently experiencing an exciting period of growth as our younger members are taking over the running of the group.

We also involve the immediate family members in our socials and community outreach programs.

We pray that this music ministry may continue to grow.

God be praised
