Dear Friend of the Music Ministries,

Music plays such a vital part in our everyday lives. For many of us, different musical soundtracks trigger memories of significant moments in our lives both happy and challenging. Please join us throughout the year as we provide programs, both sacred and secular in their various forms, that call us to embrace the power of music in our lives.

The success of this extremely vibrant ministry depends not only on the proficiency of its staff, but on the generosity of our friends and parishioners. We encourage everyone to support our ministry with the gift of time as a volunteer singer, musician or helper.

Financial contributions to our ministries are also greatly needed and appreciated. Tax-deductible financial contributions may be offered in tribute of a loved one or in thanksgiving for a particular intention. These are then included on a permanent memorial plaque displayed in our choir space.

We look forward to serving you during this very exciting year packed with wonderful events for everyone!
