Music Ministry

Music Ministry at Holy Cross

Music is an integral part of our common life. It is among the most joyful offerings we give to God — every Sunday, at parish events, and in special worship services. We believe, as St. Benedict observed, that to sing is to pray twice. Music and song allow our spirits to soar and enables us to articulate beyond words our feelings of jubilation or yearning, of praise and wonder. Music helps us to connect with the Holy Spirit in a very direct and personal way and it creates opportunities for shared experiences.

Our Latino Minister of Music is Arturo Nieto

Holy Cross+Santa Cruz Choir

The choir at Holy Cross/Santa Cruz exists to serve the Liturgy.  It  is always looking to magnify its voice.  Reading music is not necessary. A willing spirit is!

Holy Cross+Santa Cruz Kids Choir

The kids choir at Holy Cross/Santa Cruz provides an opportunity for children to discover and nurture their our voice and to learn and experience the joy of singing as one voice with others.

A Service of Advent Lessons and Song – scheduled for the Fourth Sunday of Advent, at 4pm, as part of our preparation for the anticipated Celebration of the Holy Birth.

A Service of Lenten Lessons and Song – scheduled for Fifth Sunday in Lent, at 4pm, as part of our Lenten observance and in preparation for the Celebration of the Lord’s Resurrection.

“…be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”  –
