Ministries

Music Ministry

At this time, the Music Ministry is dormant due to the Covid restrictions, save for our staff of instrumentalist/singers who are providing music at our weekend Masses.  We are so grateful to all for your continued patience with the current situation, and we are looking forward to expanding the team once the Covid situation subsides!  Once it is safe, we will recommence with singing and bell ringing...and including more instrumentalists!  Please contact Dr. Holly Zagaria, Director of Music when you would like to join our Music Ministry team!  Please stay safe and enjoy!  hzagaria@peabodycatholic.org
