"Music Notes"

Thank you so much for welcoming me to the Cathedral last weekend! I am delighted to be here in Baltimore and look forward to meeting many more of you over the weeks to come. I am only beginning to discover the musical possibilities of this lovely building and the current choir members, but there will always be room for more participants! Do you enjoy singing? Do you play an instrument? Choir membership requires a commitment to regular weekly rehearsals, but if you don't feel that is possible for you, please still introduce yourself to me as there will be other opportunities for occasional and short-term musical commitments for special events.

Music is an integral part of celebrating Mass. It is not an extra add-on just for the choir and organist. Your participation in the hymns and responses does not depend upon your perceived vocal ability (or lack thereof), but is an expression of your desire to give praise and thanks to God. If you ever get to hear my father sing, you'll wonder how I became a musician, but what I remember most is that every week in church, he sang the hymns along with everyone else. The quality of his voice did not matter because the reason he was there was more important. When you come here to worship, I trust you will use the voice God gave you to sing joyful praise.

Lent is coming soon…

As part of a special celebration of Lent this spring, we will have several Friday evening soup and bread suppers with prayers and almsgiving. To give of ourselves we are working on the possibility of: an event to decorate ceramic bowls as part of the Empty Bowls program; an event to assemble toiletry bags for residents of local shelters [looking for a coordinator of this activity]; a meal packaging event to prepare non-perishable meals that can be shared near and far [looking for leadership sponsors to cover the cost of meal packaging supplies]; and finally, a Beans and Franks Casserole making event to serve our brothers and sisters through Our Daily Bread.

If you would like to get involved in any of these events, please contact Carol Gould at csmdgould@gmail.com or 443-956- 9431. We look forward to these opportunities to bring our Cathedral community together in service to others and with prayers and fasting in the season of Lent.
