“… what happens when a person is touched by the light of the resurrection, and thus comes into contact with Life itself, with Truth and Love? …Speech is no longer adequate. He has to sing.”
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Parish Music

The St. Jerome's music ministry is now offering a variety of ways for parishioners to fully respond to the Lord’s sacrificial Love poured out for us during the Mass.

Do you play a musical instrument or like to sing? Come offer your gifts to our parish music ministry!

The Choirs of St. Jerome's

St. Jerome’s Choir is honored to provide music for St. Jerome’s 10:30 am Sunday mass. Drawing from the wealth of the Church’s artistic tradition, the choir sings a wide repertoire including Gregorian chant, renaissance polyphony and beautiful hymns. We strive to add to the reverence and beauty of the Holy Mass, and hope that we assist in creating an atmosphere of prayer and meditation that allows the congregation to participate in the wondrous act of God in the Gift of the Eucharist.

We invite anyone who is interested in joining the choir to contact Merrill or Elizabeth Roberts after the 10:30 mass, or by email at mroberts@stjeromes.org.

Folk Choir
Featuring four-part vocal harmonies and guitar/piano/bass instrumentation augmented by violin and occasional penny whistle and flute, the Folk Group leads worship music at the 8:30 Sunday Mass and the first Sunday of the month Healing Mass. Emphasizing a contemporary repertoire, primarily from the Gather 3 hymnal, the Folk Group's focus is to help facilitate worship at Mass through the congregation's active participation by singing all of the music at the liturgy.  The Folk group rehearses each Wednesday evening at 7:30 in the Sacristy. New members are always welcome, and reading music is not a requirement—only a good singing voice or instrumental ability and a heart for sharing your musical gift with God's family.

Please contact Frank Napoli at 301-779-7534 if you have any questions or would like more information about the Folk Group.

Music Ministry
Provides music for the 4:30PM Saturday Vigil Mass. Practices are Tuesdays, 8:00PM in the Sacristy.

Pange Lingua

Sing, my tongue, the Savior's glory,
Of his Flesh the mystery sing;
Of the Blood, all price exceeding,
Shed by our immortal King,
Destined for the world's redemption,
From a noble womb to spring.

-St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)
