Here is an opportunity to serve the Parish through music. If you have the ability to play an instrument (ie. piano, organ, drums, flute, horn, etc) or sing, and a willingness to learn new music and prepare for liturgies ahead of time, and possess a sense of reverence for the liturgical celebration this ministry can use you.

Opportunites to be a part of this vibrant ministry are listed below. Time involved with all music ministries varies by group. Members are given a practice schedule. For more information, contact Karen (Bernsteen) Buchinger, Director of Liturgy & Music at 434-2145 Ext. 232
