Our aim is to serve and enhance the liturgy, encouraging all to raise their

voices, thus raising minds and spirits to God.



Our Music Groups

   Saturday 6.30pm Mass     An organist and a choir.

   Sunday 9.30am Mass         A ‘folk style’ group.

   Sunday 11.30am Mass        An organist and a choir.

   Sunday 5pm Mass                 A guitarist, musicians and the youth choir.



In addition to singing and playing at their respective Masses, our enthusiastic groups of musicians and singers combine to also perform at important

liturgical celebrations like the Easter Tridium and Advent.

There are also visits to Care Homes and Day Centres to entertain residents with sing-a-longs throughout the year and during the lead up to Christmas, Carol Concerts are also performed.


There is also the occasional social get together.









We are always on the lookout for more singers and musicians to join and

enhance these groups so if you can play an instrument or sing and would like

to either join a group or just find out more information, please email
