St Cecilia Music Ministry
Praising God through a wide array of musical genres, languages, and dynamic vocal ensembles, St. Cecilia Catholic Church’s Music Ministry consists of vibrant and committed musicians, who provide leadership, encouragement, and support to all who worship at St. Cecilia Catholic Church in Tustin, California.
Celebrating our diverse cultures, St. Cecilia’s Music Ministry is grounded in our Roman Catholic faith as we incorporate the finest traditional, cultural and contemporary works into our worship. As our Patroness St. Cecilia – the Patron Saint of Music – calls us to do, we provide musical guidance to enhance the liturgy in service to our parishioners. Our goal is to promote participation through songs, hymns, psalms, mass parts, and anthems.
