Can you help sponsor our Sacred Music?Sacred Music is one the most powerful ways to express the beauty of Christ in the Liturgy. As Holy Week approaches our choirs and orchestra will present some of the most precious jewels from the Church's musical treasury as an offering to God. But to do this we sponsorship from individuals like you. Donations of any amount are accepted.
You can make the music offering in memory or in honor of a loved one or for a special prayer intention!
