Director of Music


The Director of Music oversees the music provided at all weekend Masses, weddings, and funerals, assuring that the music in our worship meets a standard of liturgical excellence.High-quality music by competent individuals and groups not only enhances enjoyment but more significantly leads to “full, active, and conscious” participation, the primary goal for our liturgies. Our adult choir, cantors, and organist make this happen.

The 5:00 PM Mass on Saturdays is a cantored Mass. Good cantors provide vital support for all congregational singing. New cantors are welcome.

Additional instrumentalists on a regular or special-occasion basis can add something special to enhance the liturgy. If you play an instrument, please contact us.

The Director meets with each bride and groom months before their wedding to help them choose the music for their wedding.

The Director of Music helps family members plan the music for funeral liturgies of a loved one.

Choir Director


The Choir sings at the 10:15 AM Mass all Sundays, except during July and August. They rehearse twice monthly and have a brief “warm up” at 9:45 am on Sundays. We always welcome new members who love to sing. The ability to sing and the desire to lend another voice to fine music are what it takes. Our choir members truly enjoy and can be rightly proud of their contribution.
