Music Ministry 

Kathy Fitzpatrick, Director of Music (301)332-7733

The Music Ministry provides music for Liturgical celebrations at St. Catherine’s. We welcome musicians and singers of various ability levels into several different groups who lead the congregation in sung prayer at Sunday, Holy Day and national holiday Masses, sacramental celebrations and Penance Services. The Music Ministry combines groups to reflect the diversity and richness of our parish at bilingual celebrations on Thanksgiving, Holy Thursday, and Confirmation. In addition to music for the Liturgy, the Music Ministry also offers the parish an annual Service of Lessons and Carols during Advent and the Liturgical Choir performs concerts of sacred music at other times of the year. We encourage parishioners to join our ministry ‘fostering the active participation of the faithful through singing’
