As ministers of sacred music, we are called to take part in a ministry directly to God and our neighbor. Our praises, quite literally, build His throne (Psalm 22:3). At every Holy Mass, we join with the choirs of angels and saints to sing God’s praises. Music plays an essential role in the life of the Church.
