On 22 November feast of St. Cecilia – patron Saint of Church music, in the Holy Trinity Church in Bereza there was a concert of a choir founded and run by Sr. Natalia Pieckielun. This year Sr. Natalia has also founded a parish music group composed of children and youth who also sang in the concert. Most choir members belong to the UAC. They sing every Sunday and Church feast during the Mass, do readings and psalms and help in the parish in many ways. Their singing is a prayer for them by which they help others to meet God. They understand it as their apostolate. The concert was also a prayer of thanksgiving to God. For members of the singers’ families, who are non-believers, it was a rare opportunity to visit a church and experience a community prayer.

Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
