Music plays a pivotal role in the prayerful celebration of the liturgy. Musicians lead the congregation in the singing of hymns and responses of the liturgy, and also sing choral music from the treasury of sacred music. Styles of music range from sixteenth century Gregorian chant and sacred polyphony to modern classical and folk music written specifically for liturgical celebrations.  

We have a number of music groups across our three parishes who enhance our weekend liturgies in different ways and who also sing at special celebrations such as First Holy Communion and Confirmation Masses. Our organists are often available to play at weddings and funerals.  

We always need voices across the vocal range so if you would like to join one of our choirs please speak to one of our coordinators or contact them via the Parish Office on and they will be delighted to welcome you.
