Music Ministries

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.


English Music Director: Gabriel Saldana


Our primary mass setting is the Mass of Christ the Savior by Dan Schutte. 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.
