A vibrant and active music ministry is essential to the worship of the parish.
The OLA Music Ministry is open to all who wish to support the full, conscious, and active participation of the assembly during the celebration of Mass, prayer services, and more. Music ministers serve either in the pews and/or on the music risers as members of ensembles to offer compressive leadership and encouragement of the singing assembly. Volunteers are needed for the Choir in the Pews at all Masses, and volunteers are also needed for our ensembles. Vocalists and instrumentalists are welcome.
Choir in the Pews is a volunteer evangelical ministry that is open to all ability levels. A 20-minute weekly online musician prayer service and support materials are offered to all who participate. We need prepared singers in the pews who are willing to sing out during Mass and other prayer services to support and encourage the singing of others. An engaged and singing assembly glorifies God and helps evangelize! A singing assembly is a welcoming assembly. Members of Choir in the Pews are especially encouraged to give input regarding song selection for Masses. If you have been interested in participating in music ministry but have never had the time, this ministry is for you.
