Music Ministry

Instrumentalists and Singers of All Ages Needed

Anytime is a great time to join one of the choirs and help continue to build the Music Ministry at OLPH. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve God and the Parish through sharing your gifts of music and song. And it promises to be a lot of fun as well! The following groups are all directed by our Music Director, Russell Stern. New members are always welcome and encouraged to join throughout the year.
