Music Ministry

Singing at mass is participating in the Liturgy. Music Ministers pray that music will bring the hearts of all parishioners closer to God through their participation in singing and/or listening. They strive to enhance the liturgy through leadership in song whether as cantors, accompanists or members of the choirs. St. Mary Parish has a long standing tradition of quality, inspirational music.
