Welcome to the world of "sung" prayer! We are so glad you visited.
Being part of the Ministry of Music at St. Patrick is a commitment to musical leadership. Participation in liturgy by being a member of the organized Choir, a voice in the children's and youth chorus or as a cantor requires a pleasant singing voice, dedication to practice and determination to participate when scheduled for Mass or a special celebration.
The Choir leads the music each month at one of the weekend Masses and for other special celebrations during the year. The Choir practices on the Sunday mornings prior to the scheduled Mass for which they are scheduled.
"Absolute Presence", an upbeat musical group, leads music for worship at the Youth Mass, usually the fourth Sunday of each month, using youth-friendly music sources such as Spirit and Song from Oregon Catholic Press and lively works by composers of World Library Publications. They also present original contemporary christian songs written by band members.
Whatever music is needed, there is a Choir, a Chorus or a single voice to lead us to Christ through sung prayer.
