Music Ministry

The OLA Parish choir is a group of dedicated singers and instrumentalists who lead the Music at the 10:00 am Mass. Their repertoire consists of a mix of traditional to contemporary liturgical music that is presented in a way to encourage assembly participation.

No experience is necessary to sing in the Parish Choir. You don't even have to read music! Click on the "Join the Choir" picture below to send director, Matt Mattei, an email expressing your interest. If you're an instrumentalist, drop us a line by and let us know what your skills are.

The OLA parish choir rehearses at 7:00 pm on Tuesday nights in the church and sings on Sunday at the 10:00 am Mass during the year. The choir alternates with the Children's Choir during the school year.
