Jim Gardner is a well-trained and dedicated Music Director for St. Thomas. Every weekend Mass Jim gives us the opportunity to dive deeper into the liturgy through an outstanding music ministry program.
However, he cannot do this alone. Over the years, the Lord has blessed Jim with ample volunteers who use their musical talents to enrich the Sacred Liturgy. We have many people who both play instruments and sing in our choir, and we are always looking for more. If the Lord has put it on your heart to join this outstanding program, please contact the music department for more information.
There are many different ways for you to help out. Opportunities to serve in our parish range from volunteer pianists, organists, to other qualified instrumentalist and guitarists. Handbell ringers of all ages are needed for our bell choirs. The Cantor program includes thorough training and on the job guidance for soloists who qualify. Besides singing or playing instruments, other opportunities to serve include volunteering to co-lead or accompany children's choir. All groups sing/ring/play at various masses throughout the church year.
Contact Jim Gardner or Nicole Koetting for more information about the Music Ministry programs here at St. Thomas.
