"Celebrate in Song"
A concert to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Dedication of the
St. Thomas Aquinas Church and School
Friday, December 6th at 6:30pm
For the 10th Anniversary of our parish, the members of the Music Ministry will present a Celebration in Song. Accompanied by members of the St Thomas Aquinas Orchestra, the ensembles will feature music on the themes of St Thomas Aquinas, the church and its people, as well as music that highlights the magnificent architecture that lends itself so beautifully to music. The Music Ministry is abundant with talent, and currently consists of six ensembles with more that 150 members.
Come and enjoy this evening with us as we perform works from medieval to contemporary, celebrating ten years of vibrant life at St Thomas.
Reception in the courtyard to follow
The Music Ministry at St. Thomas Aquinas is a vibrant program with opportunities for all. Music is an integral part of Catholic Liturgy, as well a deeply spiritual form of prayer and praise. “A cry from deep within our being, music is a way for God to lead us to the realm of higher things. As St. Augustine says, ‘Singing is for the one who loves.’” (Sing to the Lord, USCCB.)
The St Thomas Music Ministry affords opportunities for all ages, skill level and ability, and is committed to our calling to enable persons to use their talents through music to worship and witness for our Lord. Please follow the links to learn more about each ensemble, and contact the Director of Music, Verena Lucia Anders, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving in the Music Ministry.
Most of our members are volunteer parishioners and friends of St. Thomas. We are currently inviting parishioners to explore their love of music in the Lord! Please look through the various opportunities that we offer and contact the Music Office if you wish to serve the parish in this very special way.
