Liturgical Music at St. Mary's & St. Paul's

Our Masses are fully active and participatory. Our liturgical musicians are a great aid to

ensure that we have both a prayerful and and participatory atmosphere at Mass. All Masses are

lead by a cantor and accompanist with instrumentalists. We have an Adult Choir that sings regularly

and a contemporary musical group. Youth singers provide and lead music for religious education Masses.
