Music at Borehamwood

Music Ministry

Music in the Catholic Parishes of Borehamwood plays a key role in our praise and worship of Almighty God. When we give ourselves in prayer to God, the gift we give is magnified and returned to us many times over. When we sing together, we are in rhythm together, we breathe together and we blend with one another. Our individual voices combine and our sense of community is greatly enhanced.

The Hymns and Songs that we sing during the liturgy are chosen to emphasise the teachings and concepts of the scriptures proclaimed at the Eucharist. They help us to absorb God’s Word more fully, especially when we recall the tune and, more importantly, the message throughout the day. Music stirs our hearts in a way that words alone cannot.

Our Music Ministry is composed of dedicated singers and musicians who serve us by leading and supporting our active participation in worship.

Sunday 10am – St. Teresa’s Music Ministry
The 10am Music Ministry is made up of singers and sometimes instrumentalists who lead the 10am congregation in a variety of musical styles – from family hymns and congregational style worship to instrumental and contemporary music from across the world.

A congregational setting of the Mass in English is always sung along with the responsorial psalm and gospel acclamation.
