Music is an integral part of St. Bernard worship and liturgy. We believe that music has a profound effect on the Church’s many liturgical celebrations from Sunday Mass, through the various Feasts and Solemnities that mark the Catholic year.

Our musicians seek to lead the congregation in praising God, through the use of traditional and newer hymns, and a diverse repertoire of all genres of liturgical music.

We invite you to participate in our music ministry! Consider singing with one of our ensembles, choirs, or contribute using your talents by cantoring, playing an instrument or handbells.
