St. Patrick Parish Music Ministry


The Parish ChoirOur parish choir consists of many

dedicated parishioners who have a strong desire to serve their

church.   They sing every week alternating between the 9 am and

10:30 am liturgies, Christmas, Holy Week, and other special liturgies. 

We practice on Tuesday evenings, 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM September

through May. We welcome anyone from high school age to young adults

through senior adults to come and join us any Tuesday during

the year. Auditions are not required.

Practices resume Tuesday, September 17th.


The Children’s Choir Our children’s choir has been

in existence for 31 years.  This special group of children is very

proud of their service to the church and enjoys this long tradition

of providing music for Sunday liturgies and special celebrations. 

They sing weekly alternating with the adult parish choir at the 9 AM

and 10:30 AM liturgies.  This choir is open to children from all our

area schools and our parish school – grades 3 through 8. 

Practices are Tuesdays, 6 PM to 7:15 PM in the choir loft.

We look forward to seeing new faces and hearing new voices. We welcome

you! Practices are every Tuesday beginning September 17th.

Heart ‘n Soul - Teen Choir - Our Youth Music Ministry consists of a group of young vocalists and instrumentalists that have been praising God through their gifts of music and song since 2002.  This group started with a few teens who grew up singing with the Children’s Choir and wanted to continue their worship through music for our parish. 

If you are a teen or young adult, join us!  Bring your voice or your instrument and celebrate the liturgy by giving back your gifts in praise and worship to our God.  We will gather for the first time on Friday, September 20th at 6 PM in the choir loft.  Future practices will be determined by your schedule.

The Youth Handbell Choir This choir is being offered to all children of the parish in grades

6 through 8.  Practices will be determined by the availability of the group. Some music reading is necessary to join this choir.  We will be preparing for the Christmas Liturgical Season. 


The Parish Handbell Choir Our handbell choir accompanies the Parish Choir once a month for our Sunday liturgies. They also play for Christmas, Easter and all other special liturgies. We are looking for some new members to add to our group of ringers. This group practices with the parish choir on Monday evenings 6:30 PM to 8 PM. Some music reading is necessary to join.

Practices resume Monday, September 23rd.


5-Octave Concert Handbell Choir This group of handbell ringers will perform both sacred and secular music for concerts only.  Practices will be on Monday evenings 6:30 PM to 8 PM.  This group has played songs from “Phantom of the Opera” to Handel’s “Alleluia” and everything in between.  You do not need to know how to play the handbells, but you must have a basic knowledge of music reading to join this group.  All ages are welcome.


The Resurrection Choir This is a very special group of parishioners offering their time and talent to serve those members of our parish in their time of need.  When the congregation is unable to participate, the choir fills the church with their beautiful gift of song.  Please join us!


Cantors Last, but certainly not least!  We are always looking for good voices with good leading skills to help lead the congregation in song each Sunday.  Please join us for this special ministry.
