Music

The Music Ministry team at St. Pius X provides liturgical music in a variety of styles to accommodate the preferences of our actively participating ‘singing assembly’.  Joan Whelan is the Director of Music for the parish.  Joan also trains Cantors and helps couples plan music for their weddings and families plan music for memorial services and funerals.

St. Pius X is looking to expand our music ministry.  If you love to sing or play an instrument, we would love to have you join us!  Please contact Joan Whelan via either email or by phone 281-8509.
