Music at St. Mary’s

Saint John Paul II called God, the creator of everything, a “divine Artist.” Just as God created man and woman and gave them dominion over the world, he gave human artists “a spark of his own surpassing wisdom, calling them to share in his creative power” (Letter to Artists, 1999).

 

And so, with a spark of creativity and with inspiration from the Holy Spirit, the choirs at St. Mary of Sorrows “sing to the Lord a new song” (Psalm 96). By leading music at Mass, we strive to inspire prayer and bring us all closer to God. Music gives us a glimpse of the beauty heaven, where angels sing unceasingly: “holy, holy, holy Lord, God of hosts!”
