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.

Ave Maria (Wiegand)
