MUSIC MINISTRY

Make a joyful noise! Members of this ministry use their talents to lead and support the music at parish Masses and prayer services. Opportunities abound for all ages and experience levels, including adult, youth and resurrection choirs, inter-generational handbells, cantors and instrumentalists. Most groups rehearse weekly or monthly from September through May. If you sing in your car or can count to four we have an opening for you. Come lend your musical gifts as we give praise and thanks to God!
