Dates for musicians 2018 (Liturgies and rehearsals) 2019 Dates coming soon!
A number of singers and instrumentalists from all over the diocese come together at various times during the year and share their gifts and talents as they help to lead the music at diocesan liturgies. All are welcome. An ability to read music is useful.
Please contact the diocesan liturgy office if you would like to join us.
Many of these people are also part of the large group which helps to lead the music on the diocesan Lourdes Pilgrimage each year. If you would like to find out more or to join this group, please contact the Lourdes Office.
