Music Ministry

Choir Mission: “Rejoice, you righteous, in the LORD; praise from the upright is fitting. Sing to him a new song; skillfully play with joyful chant.”

Psalm 33: 1, 3

Missão do Coro “Justos, aclamai o Senhor, os corações rectos devem louva-l’O. Cantai-Lhe um cântico novo, cantai-Lhe com arte e com alma.”

Salmo 32: 1, 3


The Portuguese choir at Our Lady of the Assumption dates back to the early ‘70s when our parish first began as a cultural center, faithfully rehearsing and serving at the Eucharistic Celebrations under the direction of Fr. Ivo Rocha.  Many of its choir members still sing today as have some of their children and grandchildren over the years, and in doing so, becoming cantors, musicians and ministry leaders and inspiring others to follow.
