Liturgy and Music Ministries

Get Involved
Stay Connected

The celebration of the Eucharist is the source and summit of our parish community. Liturgy and Music Ministries draw on the talents and dedication of parishioners to provide outstanding worship opportunities at every Mass and liturgy throughout the year. Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass, parishioner contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. We seek out, welcome and encourage all people to join us in building our prayer, community, study and service!
