 Cycle or Year A - Year of Matthew

 Prayer and FaithThe month of January is dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus, which is celebrated on January 3. The first twelve days of January fall during the liturgical season known as Christmas which is represented by the liturgical color white — the color of light, a symbol of joy, purity and innocence (absolute or restored). The remaining days of January are the beginning of Ordinary Time, which is represented by the liturgical color green. This symbol of hope is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. It is used in the offices and Masses of Ordinary Time.

Singing is a gift of God it lies at the heart of all worship. Singing comes naturally to all humans and it is an intrinsic part of our lives, we sing at all moments of our lives to celebrate joy, gratitude and grief.

Music in liturgy helps to bind people and the parish so that we sing together withChurchcycleyear colours one heart and one voice. Singing together the parish hymns and songs allows us to share our sentiments, our love for God and each other it also helps bind us to that committment.

When we come together as a parish community to sing and praise God, in that sharing of our talents we can individually offer repentance, praise and thanks to God. Singing brings us together especially when we sing the hymns and songs with honesty, sincerity and with meaning.

 Sunday Hymns: Selected from the Laudate Hymnal, the parish has been using the new revised Laudate hymnal since 2014. Occassionally selected sheet music scores are used. Laudate - Published by © Decani Music, ISBN 978-1-900314-07-7. Revised in 2013, includes texts for the 3rd edition Roman Missal. 

Choir rehearsal: In the church on Sunday at 9.30. a.m. followed by the sung 10.30.a.m. Mass. Everyone is most welcome to join us including musicians.Church Floor stone FG The suggested hymns above serve as a guide for respective Sundays. The hymns are aligned to a degree with the Sunday readings, psalm and the gospel. The aim is to frame, animate and enhance the liturgy with music and songs that reflect both the vertical context (that day's readings, etc.), while also attempting to reflect the  horizontal timeline of the liturgical themes throughout the seasons and feasts, for instance, Advent and Christmastide, Lent and Easter and Ordinary time.
