"For he who sings praise, does not only praise, but also praises joyfully; he who sings praise, not only sings, but also loves Him whom he is singing about/to/for." St. Augustine
Music Ministry at IHM covers over 250 regular Sunday liturgies a year as well as weekly school masses, Holy Days, and other special events such as funerals, weddings, First Communion, and Confirmation. Our duty in this ministry is to use our musical talent to stand with the congregation in praise of God.
Our ministry involves:
The Adult Choir regularly sings at the 9 and 10:45 AM Masses on Sundays and at special liturgies throughout the year. Rehearsal is typically held on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 PM in the church.
The Heart to Heart Youth Choir is a program for youth in grades 6 through 8 that attend IHM school. This program is to foster active involvement by the students in the Mass and is a constant source of inspiration and challenges to the students. The Heart to Heart choir sings for school masses and at 12:30 mass on the first Sunday of each month. We always welcome any instrumentalists as well as vocalists. They meet immediately after school, from 2:15 to 3:15 on Wednesdays in the church.
Lifeteen Music Team is comprised of young adults in high school or college. The Music Team sings for feast days such as Easter and Christmas, and regularly sings for 6 PM mass on Sundays.
The Angel's Voice Childrens Choir is open to all children of the parish including the PREP in grades 1 through 8. This seasonal choir sings for 4 PM mass on Christmas Eve and 11:30 AM mass on Easter Sunday. The choir practices on Wednesday evenings from 5:45 to 6:45 in the church for a couple of months prior to the feast days.
