The music ministry department at St. Jude holds a reputation of excellence. We are a vibrant community of singers and instrumentalists who love to give glory to God through the majesty of song. We are always looking for new members!
Instrumentalists: Those wanting to share their musical talents with the Parish as an instrumentalist should contact Chris Jensen. If you have an ability to play a particular instrument and want to share your talent, please do not hesitate to make yourself known.
Cantoring: The cantor program at St. Jude is always looking for those with the gift of voice to lead our congregation in worship. Those who are interested should be comfortable singing in front of large groups and have previous experience in solo work or a choir.
