Music Ministries

Spanish music coordinator


Saint Catherine's has a small group of music volunteers for both the English and Spanish masses.


The English masses consist of traditional and semi-contemporary hymn selections with an organist and cantor. Piano is also used on occasion. Our Rodgers 905 digital organ was donated to us by the Avalon Community Church and has served us well for more than 15 years. Our Yamaha clavinova electronic piano was donated by local musician Martha Ashleigh. (Rest in peace)


Our primary mass setting for the 9:00am and 11:00am masses is the Mass of Christ the Savior by Dan Schutte. The 5:15pm mass on Saturday uses the Mass of Joy and Peace by Tony Alonso.

The musicians may change mass setting for special occasions.


The Spanish masses consist of a keyboardist and small choir with contemporary Spanish music selections.


Please contact us if you wish to volunteer to join the music ministry.


MISSION STATEMENT: We, the people of St. Catherine Church located on Santa Catalina Island, California, are called to be members of the body of Christ. Gathering around the Table of Word, Eucharist, and Sacraments, we commit ourselves to love and support one another in faith, hope, and charity. We are sent forth as disciples, in the power of the Holy Spirit to make the Good News of Jesus Christ present and alive in our world through outreach and hospitality, healing and service, education and the establishment of justice on this beautiful island of Santa Catalina.
