Several opportunities are available in the Music Ministry. Each of the groups, the cantors and all of the choirs, include a variety of individuals, from professional singers and musicians to people who have never done it before but simply like to share their talents! We would love to have you join us! Please contact Leo Schloss in the Liturgy Office at 764-1143. The groups (and their respective leaders) are below.
