Music Ministry at St. Mary’s
St. Mary’s Church has a vibrant liturgical music ministry which assists us in prayer and worship at our Masses and services.
Some of St. Mary’s music ministries are recruiting new members and we’d love to have you come sing and/or play with us! Feel free to talk with the music minister after Mass or contact them using the info below:
