“Sacred music also carries out another task, that of bringing together Christian history: in the liturgy, Gregorian chant, polyphony, popular music and contemporary music resonate. It is as though, in that moment, there were all the past and present generations praising God, each with its own sensitivity.” ~ Pope Francis
In this Year of the Eucharist, our ministry will focus on the ways music can invite collaboration and strengthen community within our parish and with all Catholic parishes throughout Mishawaka, IN.
