MUSIC MINISTRY

The liturgical musicians’ work is to support the prayer of the people.  Musicians share in this work when they offer their time and talent to support this prayer.  The term musician applies to both vocalists and instrumentalists.  The Song Leaders are those who provide musical leadership to the assembly during the celebration of the Eucharist through leading the sung prayer.  This includes providing vocal as well as physical support to the community’s sung prayer.

There are several ways to get involved in the music ministry.  For more information regarding the music ministry at St. Anthony’s, or to inquire about becoming a part of the music ministry, please contact Karen DeVoe, Director of Music at kdevoek@aol.com or call 508-965-1329.  For information about music at St. Rita’s, contact Fr. Bill Campbell at 774-678-0274.
