The Music Ministry at Our Lady of the Rosary, Kensington.
It has been said that “Music is the language of the soul” and that “When you sing you pray twice”. We are very fortunate to have live music at all three of our masses on the weekend.
Musicians and singers are welcome to join us. Musicians must be prepared to come early (at least an half an hour before the mass) to practise together the hymns to be played that day.
Singers do not need an opera-trained voice, but must be able to sing in tune and want to sing happily and enthusiastically to lead the congregation in proclaiming the glory of God. For the 9.30am Mass all members of the music group are emailed a day or two early the list of hymns to be sung on the Sunday.
For the special ceremonies of Easter singers are required to attend extra practice one night a week for at least four weeks before Easter.
Current Musicians: Johanes, George Machado, Dino, Nadine, Frank Reid, Paul Stinson and Sarina, Cathy Shiner & Martin, Nico-Karina & Friends, Bel Cantare Choir, etc

BECOMING A CATHOLIC - RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS (RCIA)
Co-ordinator: Dewi Suryani – 0403 115 940
For any friends or family members who wish to become Catholics, the Parish runs a program called Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). This program aims to prepare participants for the reception of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at Easter each year.
The program covers all aspects of becoming a Catholic.
Meetings are held for one hour every week at a time that is convenient for participants.
Participants are expected to prepare for each lesson by reading a chapter of a book and to participate in discussions at the meeting.
It is very good if the candidates have the personal support of Parishioners who can act as Sponsors and Godparents.
Anyone interested in participating in any way, please contact Father Alo at the Parish Office.

Youth Readers is a group for kids who are in year 2 and above who are interested to do the Liturgy readings, read the prayers of the faithful, joining the choir at special mass. The group reads on the 4th Sunday 9:30am Mass.
The participation of these kids helps them develop confidence, public reading skills, civic consciousness and above all, a sense of belonging in a church that is vibrant, diverse, and filled with the Spirit.
