Do you enjoy singing? Come and give it a try. You are most welcome to join us for our choir practices on Fridays from 7. There are no membership costs involved. We are a friendly group of people, aged between 6 and 76, comprising boy and girl choristers, teenagers and adult men and women. We sing a wide variety of church music, often in four parts, and in varying musical styles accompanied by the organ, or the digital piano or by our instrumental group. There are also social events from time to time.
Worship Planning for Epiphany
One of the greatest gifts we have is the capacity to experience the beauty of music. Throughout the ages, the rich tradition of choral music in the church assures us that generation after generation, people have recognized the ability of music to invoke spiritual awe. The church continues to insist that music is integral to the experience of the Mass. With that in mind, Epiphany seeks to provide the highest quality music at our Sunday masses to engage the congregation and elevate the liturgy.
Music and Theatre
All music and mass settings for Mass will come from one of these two hymnals to encourage congregational singing! Our mission is to lead every member of the congregation in sung prayer to glorify God and sanctify His people. We also welcome new members of our music ministry to be a part of our monthly Zoom rehearsals and as well as socially distant fellowship events. We have liturgical ensembles that lead the music at the 4pm Saturday Vigil Mass and the Sunday 9am, am, and pm Masses. These ensembles lead music in the style of contemporary hymnody , blending our ancient traditions and hymns with contemporary styles and songs. On the first Sunday of each month at the 9am Mass the parish's Family Choir will lead the music. All are welcome to join this choir; NO experience necessary and NO age limitations! We encourage the youth of the parish to get involved, and for families to join and sing together! They are both lifelong Epiphany parishioners and each hold undergraduate degrees in Music.
Epiphany, celebrated on January 6, marks the end of the Christmas season commonly referred to as the 12 days of Christmas. In some churches, Epiphany is considered the start of a new season that runs through the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. In other churches, Epiphany is celebrated as a single day, and the period that follows is considered Ordinary Time. Regardless of how you celebrate, Epiphany Sunday and the weeks that follow are about light, revelation, and glory; God manifested in the flesh, come to dwell among us.
