St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church, located at 2310 S.E. 148th Ave, Portland, OR, finds itself blessed with the beautiful and talented choir that goes by the name of the URLVD (You Are Loved) Musicians.
The people of St. Joseph the Worker Parish are blessed with the lovely voices of the URLVD Musicians, who are directed by Kathy Harris, each weekend. They perform on Saturday evenings at the Vigil Mass at 5 p.m. and on Sunday morning Mass at 10:30 a.m.
The choir’s repertoire consists mainly of praise and worship music that has been written by such songwriters as Tom Booth, Michael W. Smith, Matt Redmond, Steve Angrisano, Matt Maher and many more. Much of the music they perform comes from Spirit and Song, as well as OCP (Oregon Catholic Press). They also, on occasion, include traditional hymns, along with uplifting and heartfelt gospel pieces.
Along with their talented voices that grace the church each weekend, the choir is accompanied by three different talented guitar players, an exceptional keyboardist and drummer. On occasion, the flute is included with the music to add a touch of contemplative beauty to a song or an instrumental piece. The combination of the choir's voices and talented musical accompaniment makes for a wonderful musical and spiritual experience for all who attend Mass at St. Joseph the Worker Parish.
