Adults with flexible schedules, consider singing with our Resurrection Funeral Choir. Rehearsal is 30 minutes prior to the funeral, which is generally at  11 o’clock. This is an important ministry that offers consolation to our families during funerals.  If interested in joining, contact Chris Lord.


Did you play an instrument in band or orchestra in High School? Or College? Consider sharing your talent with our parish for Weekend Liturgies. Instrumentalists add great beauty to our prayer and give you a wonderful opportunity to continue playing. Rehearsal is 30 minutes prior to the Liturgy that works in your schedule

Interested in SOUND?  If you have experience, or interest in running a sound board, we need sound technicians to run our soundboard during any Liturgy that you attend.  Training will be available.



Volunteer your musical talent for our parish prayer any time throughout the year!
