Liturgy & Sacraments

Among the many signs and symbols used by the Church to celebrate its faith, music is of preeminent importance. As sacred song united to words it forms a necessary or integral part of the solemn liturgy.” – Music in Catholic Worship; US Bishops Documents 1972;1983. St. Noel has been blessed with a long tradition of excellent music and exceptionally musical liturgies. The Director of Music Ministries, the core group of 70 volunteer musicians, the pastor, and the community are dedicated to continuing and developing this tradition. Not only are the primary hymns and acclamations enthusiastically sung by the assembly, but the General Intercessions and Eucharistic Prayer (led by the presider) as well. We rejoice in singing the praises of God.
