Sacred Music at St. Martha
The Music Ministry is one of the most important areas of service to the liturgical life of a parish. St. Paul advised the Colossians to “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.” That is the calling of every member of the worshiping assembly. But it is the special calling of music ministers to teach, encourage, inspire, and lead them by example.
The Music Ministry at St. Martha embraces this exhortation and strives to give God glory through music that is prayerful, excellent in quality, appropriate to the parts of the Mass, and helps all who come to Encounter Jesus in Word and in Sacrament.

Cantors lead music at all weekend and Holy Day masses. They are expected to prepare music on their own, but individual rehearsals are available to any cantors who wish to take advantage of them. This ministry is open to anyone high school age through adult. Interested singers must pass an audition with Mitchell Owens, Director of Music & Liturgy.

Anyone who plays a musical instrument, whether wind, brass, string, harp, or other type of instrument, is welcome and encouraged to play at our weekend and Holy Day masses. An audition is required, and instrumentalists need to be able to prepare the music on their own. Warm-ups for liturgies occur 30 minutes before each liturgy, but additional rehearsal time can be arranged. For more information, please contact Mitchell Owens, Director of Music & Liturgy.
