It's About the Liturgy, Not Us

The Sacred Liturgy, entrusted to the Church by Christ, is not a canvas for personal preference but a timeless treasure drawing us into unity with Christ and our community. Our role in this is to enliven the Mass with liturgical music that serves the diverse community of believers, enabling worship that transcends cultural and linguistic barriers, uniting us before God.

Resting in His Heart

In the midst of life's complexities, we aim to emulate John the Beloved's example of resting in Christ’s presence. Our community focuses on listening to God's heart, letting go of distractions and preconceptions, to truly align our actions and intentions with His will.

Uniting the Family of God

Embracing the inclusive spirit of the Catholic Faith, we invite everyone to Mass - regardless of their background or knowledge. Our music serves as a universal language, bridging gaps and uniting us in worship as one family in Christ, celebrating our individuality while being wholly united with Him.
