There is a venerable saying that to sing once is to pray twice. From the first note of the Prelude to the final chord of the Postlude, the Eucharistic Liturgy is a prayer in song. Music adds a fathomless beauty to our liturgy as we lift our hearts and minds to God in worship. At PHLC, the music ministry strives for excellence as we seek to give glory to God. In our goal to create meaningful liturgy, we acknowledge that our music must be cohesive, complement the themes of the Lectionary, and inspire those gathered for worship.

Chancel Choir
(Adults AND Grades 7 through 12)
The Chancel Choir is comprised of dedicated parishioners and alternates singing at the 8:30 and 11:00 morning liturgies September through May. The choir also sings for special liturgies throughout the Church Year including Thanksgiving Eve, Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Holy Week, and Easter. The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings in the church from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., and is always in need of more dedicated individuals to join. Vocal training and ability to read music are ideal but not necessary. If you like to sing, come and join your voice with ours!

We will be announcing the Children’s Choir rehearsal schedule soon.
