Congratulations! This is a very exciting time in your life that I am hoping to make easier for you! Here is a Music Selection Form If you need anything, please contact me at music@st-henrys.org or 218-346-7030. In the meantime, here are a few notes about this page.

 

God Bless,

Director of Music and Liturgy

 

  • Below is the approved list of wedding music for here at St. Henry.

  • This list is not exhaustive. If you have a song/setting you would like to do that is not on this list, we can approve or deny its use in a timely manner if you send us the title and composer of the piece.

  • However, according to Diocesan Guidelines, Wedding March from "A Midsummer Night's Dream (Felix Mendelssohn) and Bridal Chorus from "Lohengrin" (Wagner's "Here Comes the Bride") are never to be used for a Catholic Wedding.

  • You can click on any of the underlined titles to open a YouTube video of that song.

  • Keep in mind that our musicians may not be able to replicate the content of these videos.

  • Also keep in mind that these videos are for purely informational purposes.

  • The Preparation of Gifts songs can also be used for Communion.

  • If the song has a number next to it, it can and probably should be sung with the congregation.

  • The numbers are for Journeysongs Third Edition.
