Whether it is at our weekly liturgies, the Easter Triduum, a funeral or a prayer service, the Music Ministry strives to provide joyful, prayerful and accessible music for the congregation. We aim to lead, but not overpower, the assembly; to encourage everyone to “make a joyful noise to the Lord!” No matter your schedule, age or level of experience, your time and talent is needed and welcome!

Choir MembersMake a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
Sing unto the Lord with the harp;
with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
With trumpets and sound of cornet
make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King.
-Psalm 98:4-6
