The OLSS Music Ministry is grounded in the following:
Vision: Offering our God-given gifts to provide music that encourages full engagement not only in liturgy, but in living-out our faith. Values: Christ-centered ministry – To ensure that all we do is in line with Christ’s teachings and example. Inclusion – To provide a creative, encouraging environment that allows musical talent to be recognized and offered at liturgies across a variety of musical styles. Humility – To understand that we are the accompaniment to the liturgy and not to detract from the Altar. Musical Excellence – To give Jesus our best. Mission: Combining our ministry values and musical gifts, we will strive to attract, develop and place into service music ministers who will in turn enhance the celebration of the Mass and other liturgical celebrations and to support the congregation in singing, so that all who attend services will be inspired and engaged in their faith.
