Music Ministry

Director of Music:  Patty Dolezal-Neumann

Music is integral to the liturgical celebration.  It allows the community to express convictions and feelings that words alone fail to convey.  It has the power to console, uplift, and strengthen individuals and the unity of the assembly in faith and love.  There are opportunities for all parishioners to participate in OLG’s Music Ministry. Entrance into one of our choirs or ensembles is welcome at any time.
