Private: Music Ministry

In the words of Andrew Joseph…
A small narration about our choir – From adolescence we have grown up to attend mass every Sunday and were actively involved with church activities such as choir, Youth members, Liturgy members and the list goes on. We have always loved music and have successfully led choirs in India and Australia from parishes we came from. When we became parishioners of St Patricks Pakenham, we always wanted to form a choir group and play music that everyone will join and enjoy. We approached Fr Bernard with the idea and he willingly accepted our proposal to form a choir group at St Patricks. We have received great feedback from the congregation and intend to keep up the good work by bringing in more angelic music and bringing people together to sing God’s praises in his church.
If you would like to listen our music, please attend every 1st Sundays 10.30 am mass where you would hear us sing.
