Music Ministry

Use your gifts to Praise Him! Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. Psalm 33:3



At Our Lady of Peace, we believe that praise and worship are an active, dynamic, integral link between God and His
people. This ministry seeks to serve Him humbly in a spirit of excellence through music and to lead others into His
presence so that we glorify God as one body with one voice through one Spirit. Opportunities to be a part of this
ministry are available for those gifted with musical ability and have the desire to serve.
