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
