"For he who sings praise, does not only praise, but also praises joyfully; he who sings praise, not only sings, but also loves Him whom he is singing about"                            St. Augustine of Hippo

The Music Ministry seeks to exalt, praise, and glorify the name of Jesus through music and worship.
There are many opportunities for you to use your gifts and talents - you can be a member of the choir, a cantor, or an instrumentalist at any one of our three weekend Masses. You can also share your gifts with the bereaved at wake services and funerals. 

Choir Rehearsals are from 12:15-1:30pm on Sundays at church (Sanford). These will continue every Sunday unless noted in the music room. We are currently looking for NEW members!! If you love to sing or play an instrument, please attend a rehearsal or contact Bill Bankstahl for further details. We also sing at Dow Gardens, Washington Woods and The Pines as well as other activities. No Experience or Try Outs Necessary! Try it you will like it!!
