The mission of the music ministry at St. Paul’s Parish is to engage and inspire all singers, bringing meaningful music to the liturgical life of the congregation.
Of all the Christian traditions, the Anglican Communion, of which the Episcopal Church is the American province, has nurtured one of the strongest traditions of liturgical music, both choral music and hymnody. In this tradition the Choir assists the Presider or Officiant in leading worship through the singing of service music, canticles, hymns, psalms, and anthems. As such, the Choir performs a sacramental role in worship, offering their gifts from God to the people of God through sung prayer.
It is an honor and a privilege to participate in this vibrant music ministry. Our parish supports excellent music and liturgy that is meant to uplift those who worship. Music has a significant role to play in the spiritual life of our community. It has the power to uplift, to teach, to unite, and is an integral part of inspiring worship.
