The Music Ministry
Ss. Peter and Paul The Apostles
Singing and Celebrating
The Music Ministry of Ss. Peter and Paul the Apostles begins and centers around our parish's Eucharistic celebrations. By each person's participation, we strengthen and nourish one another's faith. Our various choirs are a reflection of the spirit of our faith and their purpose is to lead us in sung prayer.
Our parish has been blessed with many talented and gifted people. At this time, we extend an invitation to all who would like to become more involved in our music ministry. Our various choirs welcome and need dedicated people who are willing to share their time and talents.
If you are interested in joining this very important part of parish life, please consider one of the following choirs. Come and share the fun, fellowship and joy of giving your gift to the Lord.
