Music plays an integral part in the liturgical worship at St. Patrick Church. It is a vital and core element that has the power to raise the mind and heart to God. There are various types of musical talent that truly enhance the Mass and other sacred liturgies - from the traditional to the contemporary, our professionally trained personnel will touch your heart.
The music at St. Patrick’s Church features a traditional, choir led worship at the 8am. Mass on Weekends and contemporary praise and worship at the 4pm., 10:30am. and 12pm. Masses. If you have a desire to “sing a new song” to the Lord and inspire others to do so, we invite you to consider these opportunities to service through the music ministry.
