A ministry as ambitious, rigorous and comprehensive as our parish music ministry depends not only on the gifts of time and talent of musicians, but also on many gifts of leadership and support. Whether you are a singer, instrumentalist, or an appreciative worshipper in the Sunday congregation, there is a place for you in our Ministry of Music right now, as surely as there is place in the heavenly choir prepared for you.
