St Malachy

St. Malachy Parish offers a wide array of musical traditions at its Masses. The Second Vatican Council asked for the “full and active participation”[1] of the congregation, and the music is selected with this in mind.
4:00pm Vigil Mass: The music at this Mass features piano, organ, classical guitar, and vocal harmonies. The liturgical music is selected mainly from the modern American repertoire.
10:30am Mass: The music at this Mass features piano, guitar, drums, bass, keyboard, flute, percussion, violin, and a small choir. The music selections are taken from a wide variety of traditions but feature predominantly contemporary Christian songs.
Children’s Choir: St. Malachy Parish will once again feature a Children’s choir on select days throughout the school year. Please email music@saint-malachy.org if you are interesting in having your child sing.
If you are interested in being a cantor, singing in the choir, or playing an instrument in the band, please contact Danny Mainardi at music@saint-malachy.org.
