Music Ministry


The Music Ministry offers opportunities to express our faith with a variety of musical experiences for each Mass. For special feasts and celebrations, we join together to form one choir with many voices and instruments. We want to alleviate any reservations you may have about joining the Music Ministry. Formal training in music is not required. All you need is the desire to sing or play an instrument. Whether you would like to join us weekly, for a special time of year, or just for a specific event, you are always welcome!

Cantors play a special role in leading the assembly and proclaiming the psalms. We utilize cantors at all our masses, and being a cantor requires excellent singing ability, strong music reading and interpretation.
