Music & Choir
“Come; let us sing joyfully to the Lord.”
– Psalm 95
The goal of All Saints Music & Choir is to inspire parishioners to join in praising God through song, to “evoke the presence and power of God through the beauty of music,” and to draw people closer to God and His Church through the power of music. (J. Michael McMahon, America, April, 2008).
