Music Diirector: Anthony Ruggiero
Purpose: The mission of the St. Paschal Baylon Music Ministry is to assist the assembly in expressing and sharing the gift of faith through full and active participation in song and the overall worship of the community. Through our music we lead one another into deeper understanding of the liturgy and the mysteries of our Catholic faith.
Commitment: Currently our Music Ministry consists of several groups with varying levels of commitment (outlined below) to meet with the needs of our parish community. In addition to the weekend Masses, these groups provide music for various feasts, holidays, concerts, and other special celebrations throughout the year.

Cantors and Instrumentalists: There is a certain level of competency and musical training that is necessary for these music ministry roles. Contact the Director of Music Ministry if you are interested in being a leader of song (cantor) or if you play an instrument and would like to share that gift at Mass and other liturgical celebrations.
