Mission Statement

We, the members

of the Columbus, Ohio Diocesan Chapter of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians, are a membership society of clergy, musicians, and liturgists.

We join each other as a part of this association:

To help

one another to grow in our relationship with God

To affirm

each other as people who reflect the reality of God in our lives by our song

To support

each other in our triumphs and our trials

To educate

one another about music, improving our musicianship and expanding our musical horizons

To educate

one another about liturgy, improving both our understanding of why we do what we do and our ability to lead the people of God in prayer through music

To challenge

each other continually to implement the vision of the second Vatican Council, always striving for the "full, conscious, and active participation of the faithful."
