Music Ministry

 

Praise the LORD
Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
    praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
    praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
    praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
    praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.

 

 

What is Music Ministry?

Music Ministry here at St. Jude of the Lake is more than just singing at church.

Our 2015-2016 season will be dedicated to serving others in our community and on the broader world spectrum. Our slogan for this upcoming movement in our ministry is, “It Takes a Whole Village.” Furthermore, it takes a whole village to raise one child. It is the goal of St. Jude’s Music Ministry to assist in the formation of the faith and spirituality of our direct congregation, but it doesn’t stop there. We must also bring our mission beyond the walls of this church building and serve those less fortunate, or those who experience life in ways different from our own. While we are out, we will also be able to share the gift we love most, music, and form collaborative relationships with other musical groups along the way. This is why the choir will be engaging in service projects every month to build community, strengthen our faith, and form lasting relationships with people whom we have not yet had the incredible pleasure of meeting. These service opportunities will take us to nursing homes, homeless shelters, public and private schools, hospitals, and other areas around our community. In addition to these places, we will have the amazing experience of connecting with people of different faiths and ethnic backgrounds, to exchange and learn about faith, music, and friendship. Our mission is to simply do as the Pope tells us, live our faith in action to serve others.
