Old St Mary Parish invites you to pray and consider joining our Liturgical Ministries of Lector, Altar Server, Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, and Usher. Your response will add to the beauty of our prayer together at Mass. The life of the parish is enriched by all who serve at the altar. You can see either Nicholas Corrao, our parish sacristan in the sacristy, or Joseph Wittmann in the loft at the organ, after any Mass. You may also call the parish office at 414-271-6180 or email email@example.com. We look forward to your service with us.
This is the beginning of the seventh year that we have been blessed to be a part of the venerable musical tradition of Old St. Mary Parish. Together we make this place a destination for those seeking beauty and peace. To pray with all of you, and lead the music from the organ, is a true delight!
To maintain a ministry that serves others, each of us with our own gifts has a responsibility to Christian service. What is asked of you is to give what has been freely given to you. This is your invitation to share your talents, and to also invite others from around the Milwaukee area you may know to join us. With the grace of God, all things are possible!
As the hymn text sings “Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise.” The Choir will continue to sing at the 11:30 am Mass. From the organ bench I hear many wonderful voices coming from the congregation, I would love to meet you! We rehearse on Sunday mornings from 10:10 am to the time of Mass at 11:30 am. No weeknight rehearsals. We will begin the choir season on Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 10:10 am in the church loft.
“Let every instrument be tuned for praise….” We also need you to serve as an Instrumentalist. If you play an instrument, we need you to add beauty to our music and enhance our worship. We hope to expand our beautiful String Ensemble, and if there is enough interest, perhaps we can even form a Brass Ensemble. If your instrument has been in its case for too long, perhaps now is the time to dust it off and become involved at Old St. Mary.
We are here to serve. Whatever the response is will determine our direction. We will use the gifts that God provides us to work with. You can join Music Ministry by calling the parish office 414-271-6180 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop up in the loft and introduce yourself to me. I’m the one at the organ. Please consider joining, it may be the most rewarding thing you do all year!
