Music at St. Catherine’s
One of the particular gifts of a Dominican Parish is the prayerful celebration of the Sacred Liturgy. The place of Sacred Music as a vehicle of the Gospel has been one of the particular gifts of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Sacred Music of the Church of Saint Catherine of Siena serves the Sacred Liturgy and seeks to offer everyone the holiness of the beauty of God and the beauty through which God reveals His incarnate Presence in this world.
Music at the Church of Saint Catherine of Siena
“[Music] has the power to lead us back … to the Creator of all harmony, creating a resonance within us which is like being in tune with the beauty and truth of God, with the reality which no human knowledge or philosophy can ever express.”
—His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI
With highest excellence, the mission of music at the Church of Saint Catherine of Siena is to inspire and lead the communal praise of God using the best of the Catholic- Christian tradition. The Schola Dominicana, our resident professional choral ensemble, can be heard at the Sunday Noon Choral Mass throughout the academic year and during important events and feasts. Additionally, chamber orchestras and brass with timpani mark those cardinal celebrations requiring greater festivity. Organ and cantor lead sacred song during Sunday liturgies and at the midday celebration of mass on Wednesday with Adoration.
