The music ministry at Sts. Peter and Paul provides musical support for all liturgical functions to aid in fostering full and active participation by the assembly. Our goals are to elevate the worship of the faithful through music as outlined in Church documents such as "Sing to the Lord, General Instructions on the Roman Missal" and "Sacrosanctum Concilium."
All members of the parish community that have a desire to serve the Lord and their community through song are welcome to participate.
