Music Ministry

"Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts." (Psalm 105:2)

IS MUSIC YOUR TALENT? The music ministry at Saint Joseph Parish has been rejuvenated...and opportunities abound for you to become involved in this exciting ministry. We are always seeking new voices and instrumentalists. So, there is a place for you in music ministry and a place for you to add your God-given gifts to praise our Lord in worship. Whether your interest is in vocal music, keyboard, guitar, woodwind, brass, or percussion, Our program offers a wide variety of opportunities for praising God through music. We would like to invite each of you to consider ministering to each other through music ministry at Saint Joseph Parish. Please consider joining us for fellowship, music and personal enrichment.

Currently Cantors lead congregational singing at the 4:30pm Mass on Saturday and the 12:15 Mass on Sunday. Responsibilities include leading and an¬≠nouncing all hymns and leading the psalmody and acclamations. 

The Contemporary Music Group leads the music weekly throughout the year at the 10:15 am Mass and at other special services. The CMG leads all songs and acclamations and prepares special music each week. They are made up of singers, guitarists, and other instrumentalists. Instrumentalists add great dynamics to worship. Strings, brass, woodwinds, recorders, and percussion are needed to play with our CMG. Organists and Pianists are always needed to play for many different functions. 

If you are interested in becoming part of the Music Ministry at St. Joseph's, please contact Jay Klapka.
