Dr. J. Michael McMahan, President of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians, once wrote, “The song of liturgy is a rehearsal if you will, for the song of life. At the liturgy we hear God’s song: God’s song forms us into a people.”  Music Ministry is a way to serve God and God’s children (the parish).  Taking part in Music Ministry is a wonderful opportunity to live our Parish vision resulting in the spiritual growth and unity of our Parish!   There are several opportunities to offer your time and talent with our Parish:
