Music at St Helen’s
‘To sing is to pray twice: he who sings praise, not only sings, but also loves Him whom he is singing about.’
Most of us would agree that music is an important part of worship. The quality of joy and enthusiasm which music adds to community worship cannot be gained in any other way. The aim of music at St Helen’s is to be fully inclusive.
Saturday evening mass is celebrated with congregational singing accompanied by keyboard or organ. Sunday morning masses are accompanied on a half-termly rota by an instrumental group, organ or other groups of musicians reflecting the diverse make-up of our parish.
Music in the parish is co-ordinated by Brett Pugh and Matt Conroy assisted by Tracey Hoy and Cath Perry.
