From the Music Ministry

Although we are not together, the music remains! As we continue on our journey through Lent, you can bring Lenten music to your day in any number of ways. You can sing along with televised or live streamed Masses, you can hum your favorite church songs as you go about your day, and you can also listen to old and new favorites online. Our Breaking Bread missals come from Oregon Catholic Press, ocp.org. There, you can find many of the songs that we use at St. Barts. You can search a song title and in most cases, can listen to much of the song online. You can explore new songs and even old and new Mass parts. In addition, you can find full length versions of many, many songs online by googling the name of the song and the phrase “youtube.” Some of our tried and true Lenten favorites at St. Barts are Hosea, Lord Who Throughout These Forty Days, and Beyond the Days. Some newer Lenten-themed hymns that we had started to introduce earlier in our season include God Beyond All Names, Come Follow Me, You are the Light, and Gracious God. If you find yourself wanting to hear a song and just can’t find it, or can’t remember the title, please feel free to email me through our St. Barts website, on the “contact” page. I would be very happy to help you search for your favorite song. I know we will be praising God together again before we know it!
