“Come, let us sing joyfully to the LORD; cry out to the rock of our salvation.  Let us come before him with a song of praise, joyfully sing out our psalms.”
Psalms 95: 1-2

The Music Ministry brings richness to the Mass by supporting and encouraging active participation of all assembled through song and response. Music, a joyful form of prayer, gives glory to God and assists the parishioners of Saint Gregory the Great to experience Him through the power and beauty of sacred song. This ministry provides musical direction and brings together parishioners who share a passion for music.
