“As a manifestation of the human spirit, music performs a function which is noble, unique, and irreplaceable. When it is truly beautiful and inspired, it speaks to us more than all the other arts of goodness, virtue, peace, of matters holy and divine. For good reason it has always been, and it will always be, an essential part of the liturgy”

-St. Pope John Paul II, (December 23, 1988). 

Music plays an integral part within the Catholic Liturgy. At St. Patrick’s Church of Merna, our dedicated, hard-working, singers and instrumentalists strive for excellence while also seeking to bring our congregation to a closer union with God.
