The mission of the music ministry of Santa Sophia is to inspire people to worship God through sacred music. St Augustine said “he who sings, prays twice” and the music ministry is committed to building a “singing” church. Our music ministry seeks to fill the church with the sound of singing in praise to God by using an eclectic mix of music from traditional to contemporary. But our desire is not just to hear the choir’s voice but to hear….EVERYONE’S voice! To build this atmosphere of singing we need people to give of their time and talent in a special way and join the music ministry. So if you are a singer or instrumentalist and have a willing, generous spirit, then you are qualified to be in one of our choirs. Interested or need more information? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
