Music is instrumental to our practice of worship and so we especially encourage the participation of the faithful in all of the sacred music that is part of the Mass.

St. Augustine gave us an idea of the importance of music in the liturgy when he suggested that “He who sings, prays twice.” Liturgical hymns are specifically selected to correspond to both the liturgical calendar and the scriptural message of a particular liturgy. So, in the practice of worship, there is much to be gained by being attentive to the words of selected hymns and joining in the singing of those hymns.

Participation in the singing of hymns with other members of the congregation further serves to strengthen our communion with one another, which is part of our worship experience.
