Folk Ensemble

The Folk Ensemble provides music support for the Sunday 10:30AM. We rehearse every Wednesday at 6:00PM. We draw from the Spirit and Song and current contemporary Christian music. All young adults and adult singers and musicians (guitarists, brass players, woodwind players, percussionists and drummers, keyboardists) are encouraged to participate in this group.

Funeral Choir

This choir sings for funeral Masses at St. Mary's. We sing from the St. Augustine hymnal. Participation is from singers with free time in the late mornings/early afternoons. This is a wonderful volunteer ministry that is a blessing to the church community.
