Children, especially those that attend a Catholic School, are the future ministers and leaders of the Catholic Church. At All Saints Catholic School, our students are being prepared to take an active part in the church, especially the liturgy.
At our last two school Masses, at our parish-Our Lady of the Mountains, our students who take piano lessons played the piano for our school Masses.
Pictured above are the three students who played songs for our children's Mass.
They were applauded by the parishioners and students at the Mass for having the courage to play and for the congregation and lead the school choir. Many piano players enjoy playing the piano for themselves or their family but are too afraid to play in church, especially if the choir is up front.
Natalie also played for the 5:00pm Saturday night Mass with a choir.
|Natalie's mom helped her out through the Mass and stayed by her to give her confidence and reassurance.|
Natalie loves playing for Mass. She was also very relieved to have her first weekend Mass over, especially after she made it through the whole Gloria.
