Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Music Ministry
Have you ever heard the saying, “singing is praying twice?” It’s definitely true! Music is a blessed gift given to us by God. How wonderful it is, then, to give that blessed gift back to God!
Music Ministry offers us the opportunity to do just that. Music is capable of touching hearts and souls in ways that words alone cannot. Music is the universal language that reaches far beyond race, color, or religion. Music is our gift of praise to the Lord! In sharing our gift of music with God and our parish family, we in turn, receive blessings a hundredfold.
If singing or playing an instrument is your special gift, come be a part of our Music Ministry family here at SEAS. Just contact our liturgy director and set up a time when you can come in and see where your gifts would best serve our parish family.
We have a place for everyone here at SEAS.

PRAYER OF PREPARATION FOR A MUSICIAN
Lord, the time is at hand:
I am about to become Your sacred instrument.
Through me and the talents You have given me,
I am about to become a channel
of Your Mysterious Grace.
May the melody and song of this Celebration
give honor to You, my God and Lord.
Free of excessive nervousness and fear,
forgetful of myself,
may I become a perfectly tuned instrument
through which You mysteriously will touch
each person who will hear the music
that has been prepared.
Free my heart of pride
and of any desire for attention
so that the Divine Melody
may be heard beneath each song,
beneath every expression of my talent.
May this sacred worship be not a performance
but my prayer to You,
my service to the community
and my gratitude for the gifts and talents
that You have bestowed on me.
I am Yours, play upon me.
