St. Patrick's Parish Music Ministry


The Saturday 6:00 p.m. and Sunday 11:00 a.m. Eucharistic Celebrations at St. Patrick's are all enhanced by songs of praise and sung prayers of the Mass, led by a large group of committed musicians and singers.  Music is also a regular feature of weddings and funerals and other services held in the church. 

The 6:00 Saturday Mass features music suiting the youth-and-family focus of the liturgy, with songs and hymns from Glory and Praise and the Catholic Book of Worship III.  Two music groups with a variety of instruments alternate weeks in providing the music in all but the summer months.  The two groups hold practices weekly or as-needed; for details, and if you are interested in joining, please contact the parish office.

The 11:00 Sunday choir is directed by organist Susan Smedley, and sings new and traditional hymns and service music from the Catholic Book of Worship III and Glory and Praise, as well as from the hymnal supplement Celebrate in Song.  This mixed-voice  group of approximately 10-15 members practices in the church on Thursday evenings, 7:30-8:30 p.m. from September through June, and welcomes new members throughout the year.

If you would like to become involved in parish music ministry or need more information, please contact the Music Director, Susan Smedley, at 250-208-3834, or call St. Patrick's Parish Office, 250-592-7391, for further referral.
