Mission Statement

The Music Ministry of OLBS Parish seeks to involve every member of our congregation in full, conscious and active participation in the Liturgy. Our role is to motivate, reinforce, and sustain the congregation's singing and participation. Our Ministry is called to reinforce the Scripture Readings with sung prayer. One of the most powerful characteristics of singing is that it connects with both our thoughts and emotions. Singing the truths in the Bible enhances our experience with God through his Word both emotionally and cognitively.
