Your Choir Needs You!

For many years St Mary’s has had a tradition of supporting the Mass with music. We are blessed with some very capable musicians who strive to enhance the spiritual environment by singing and leading the congregation in worship. There is a need to ensure this tradition continues. Unfortunately, many choir members are reaching a certain age and the ability to maintain a credible voice is fading.

There would appear to be a few myths about singing in a choir. The most frequent one is the perception that a choir member needs to be able to read music; WRONG! At the level we are in the parish, what’s needed is the ability to sing and maintain the correct pitch, commit to self-improvement, but most of all enjoy the pleasure of being with a group who celebrate what they are achieving.

If you can do that please think about joining the choir. Contact by email, using newsletter@stmaryoftheangels.org.uk

This is my Son, the Beloved

The Feast of the Baptism of Jesus introduces us into the daily regularity of a personal relationship with him. Indeed, by immersion in the waters of the Jordan, Jesus united himself with us. Baptism is, so to speak, the bridge he built between himself and us, the road on which he makes himself accessible to us. It is the divine rainbow over our lives, the promise of God’s great “yes”, the door of hope and, at the same time, the sign that that indicates to us the path to take actively and joyfully in order to encounter him and feel loved by him.

Pope Benedict XVI, 2009
