All the Earth Will Sing You Praises! “A liturgical service takes on a nobler aspect when the rites are celebrated with singing, the sacred ministers take part in them, and the faithful actively participate.” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy 113) We are singers and musicians using our talents to help the worshiping community fully participate in and experience the liturgy. As God’s servants through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the OLPH Praise Team provides music to enhance our liturgy and deepen the spiritual experience of the community. Our mission is one of prayer, thanksgiving and contemplation for the love of God. We provide an enriching spiritual experience through musical selections that both compliment the readings and the season. We believe that music moves people to see the Eucharist as alive and real as God has intended for us, His children. Thank you for joining with us in this ministry of music and helping in the building of God's Kingdom. Wanting to join the OLPH Music Ministry: What are the requirements to be a member? First there is a one on one audition with the music director. Although music reading is a plus, lack of ability to read music should not hold you back. For vocalist we look for: accurate pitch and ease of melody recognition. For instrumentalist we look for: skill of playing ability to read Chord Charts or Lead Sheets You don't need to be a virtuoso musician, but because of the amount of music we play and the frequency of music turnover, a certain level of proficiency is required. 1 Chronicles 25:6-8: All these men were under the supervision of their fathers for the music of the temple of the LORD, with cymbals, lyres and harps, for the ministry at the house of God. ...Along with their relatives—all of them trained and skilled in music for the LORD ... Young and old alike, teacher as well as student, cast lots for their duties. : : : :
