It's Time to Start Your MINISTRY
When you share your time and talents with the church, you are not only blessing others, but also being blessed in return.
We’re called to use our gifts to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace. … Just as with spiritual gifts, God wants us to use our talents and skills for the benefit of others. – 1 Peter 4:10

Since the early days of the church, music has been at the heart of worship. The focus of music ministry is to bring people to God through the inspirations provided by composers of all genres.
At St. Rose of Lima the primary mission of the music ministry is to assist the congregation with full participation in the liturgy. Although trained musicians are needed to serve as cantors and accompanists (organ, keyboard and guitar), voices of most abilities are encouraged to join the ministry in both English and Spanish.
We also welcome other musicians (i.e., woodwinds, strings, brass, percussion) to enhance the singing.
Please contact Mary Alvarado, Music Coordinator at (805) 238-2218 ext. 143 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
