Our Lady of the Lake

Music Ministries

Music is an integral part of most liturgies. While the assembly is called to participate in singing, accompaniment and leadership can provide support that inspires the assembly’s participation. If you like to play an instrument or sing, please consider joining one of our groups.

Contact the Director of Music Ministry, Melissa Gali-Bird to join any element of the Our Lady of the Lake music ministry. Click here for Youth Registration Form.
