The music ministry at St. Patrick exists to enable the sung prayer of the whole assembly, and to add the embellishments of harmony and instrumentation. All of our efforts are oriented toward the goal of enabling people to raise their hearts and minds to God through active participation in music and song. To accomplish this, we have several choirs and use a variety of individual instrumentalists.
The adult choir sings 3-4 times a month, rotating between the Masses, and on holy days and holidays as needed. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 PM. No audition required! For more information, contact Linda Lenc, Director of Liturgy and Music, at LLenc@st-patricks.org or 763-753-9944.
New this year at St. Patrick! The teen choir is for vocalists and instrumentalists in junior high and high school. The choir will sing twice during the 2015-2016 school year, with minimal rehearsal requirements before the Mass - usually two rehearsals and then a warm up one hour prior to Mass. Watch for more details coming soon!
