Saint Ephrem


At the music meeting last night, Marge mentioned reading about Saint Ephrem. Follow the links below to learn more about him. 

https://www.franciscanmedia.org/saint-ephrem/
"Ephrem became one of the first to introduce song into the Church’s public worship as a means of instruction for the faithful. His many hymns have earned him the title 'Harp of the Holy Spirit.'"

Don't forget to vote for the Choir's Choice selection for our final mass on June 11th! Will it be Great is the Lord or Full Control? Go to the Adult Choir page to hear recordings of each, then vote for your preference on the sheet in the music office! 




Greg found a great article from Reader's Digest called, "The 44 Words That Will Give You a Longer (and Happier) Life." Below is the excerpt about the benefits of singing.


Sing

A U.S. study of 166 older adults revealed that those who joined a choir were in better health, used less medication, were less lonely, and had fewer falls after a year than a similar group of non-singers. This could be due to the effect that singing has on breathing as well as the emotional benefits of creating harmony with a group. Another small study out of Sweden found that when choir members sang in unison, their heart rates slowed down and eventually synchronized, which may have long-term benefits for both cardiovascular and mental health.
