Music Ministry

Join Our Outstanding Adult and Teen Choir!

At Saint Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church, we strive to make each liturgy a rich and fulfilling experience.  To that end we consider the musical element of our worship to be of great importance.  Every effort is made to help the worshiping assembly find their voice. Choirs, cantors, and instrumentalists assist in the music ministry of the parish.
 
Christian worship throughout the ages has been closely linked to a great tradition of music that gives glory to God and inspires us to service.  It is our intention to carry that mission forward as we bring Christ’s message to our community and the world.
