Music Director

St. Gerald Music Ministry 

The mission of the Music Ministry at St. Gerald Parish is to support the gospel message through song, and challenge the assembly to live it more fully. The personal goal of the Director of Music Ministries is to develop a prayerful, singing assembly through preparation, celebration and education. There is an opportunity for every parishioner to participate in song, whether as a chorister, cantor, instrumentalist, or a member of the congregation.

Adult Choir- Ages 15 + No experience or music reading skills necessary. If you like to sing, join us! Rehearsals meet weekly on Thursday evenings at 7p.m. in the church music area. Adult choir sings weekly at the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Mass, and for special occasions.
