Start by doing what’s necessary;
then do what’s possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
-St. Francis of Assisi

Music Ministry



Saint Joe’s is dedicated to the formation of a passionate, energetic music ministry.

We incorporate a variety of liturgical musical styles into our worship.

We invite those who play an instrument or have a desire to sing (as a cantor or in the choir) to join this important ministry.
When we sing, we pray twice.
