Music


 

Music Team at Holy Cross

 

The music at our worship services is diverse and engaging, inviting participation by all those present. It is contemporary in style, led by a choir and an assortment of string and wind instruments. Music is chosen so that it creates the environment for worship appropriate to each occasion.

Hymns are chosen to reflect the diversity of our congregation, which reflects many different spiritual journeys and experiences. Hymns also reflect the themes of the readings assigned to each service by the Revised Common Lectionary used by the Episcopal Church to guide us through all the seasons of the church year. We are constantly seeking out new hymns to broaden our horizon beyond the Episcopal Hymnal and the more contemporary hymns currently familiar to the congregation. The Music Ministry, led by our Music Director Ethan Roeben, is aided in this process by the more-broadly focused work of the Worship Committee, which includes member of our vestry and our Interim Rector, Jerry Gallagher.

If you are inspired to be part of the Music Team and want to share your musical talents please contact music@hcew.org or join in the weekly practice on Thursdays starting at 6:30 pm.
