Dear Reader,    
 
Welcome to the Saint Paul Catholic Church Music Ministry web page.  For thousands of years, the Catholic Church has generated, comissioned, and been the inspiration for countless musical works of art.  At Saint Paul Church, we are committed to presenting music representing the wealth of Catholic and indeed Judeo-Christian heritage.  We also are committed to the creation of new musical works of art.  At our parish, you will hear music from ancient Judaism, the middle ages, the baroque, classical, romantic, and modern periods of music, as well as music written only yesterday.  In addition, our instrumentalists are skilled in the art of improvisation and often create music "on the spot" to suit a liturgical theme.  Volunteer to be involved with the parish choir and lend your voice to the Holy Mass!  You may also audition to play an instrument during Mass.  Even by sitting in the pew, your are participating in our Music Ministry by becoming part of the living, spiritual entity that is sacred music.  It is our prayer that you will be blessed by sacred art in the sacred space that is Saint Paul Roman Catholic Church.
 
Peace in Christ,
 
Brian Brown
Director of Music Ministry
