Each Mass has a volunteer leader of song.  Ability to read music is a MUST.   Audition is required.  


Occasionally instruments are used at weekend Masses and encouraged at all special liturgies.  Ability to read music is a MUST.  Volunteer musicians must supply their own instruments (except for conga drums, tambourines and finger cymbals).  Music will be provided.
