Music Ministry Officers:
Praise Band Director:
The Student Music Ministries at St. Augustine invite students of any and all musical ability (piano, guitar, violin, vocals, etc.) to share their talents with the rest of the community! There are plenty of opportunities to get involved:
At the Tuesday 5:30pm Mass, there is a student choir. Rehearsal for this starts an hour before the Mass in the parish library. We also have a bimonthly student Mass at the Sunday 5:30pm Mass.
Every semester, there is Mass on the Grass at 12:00 pm at UF’s Plaza of the Americas. Rehearsal for Mass on the Grass starts at 10:45am in the Parish library.
We also have a Praise Band that plays at student ministries such as Catholic Student Fellowship’s weekly gatherings, Eucharistic Adoration, praise and worship, and other special events such as Open Mic and Coffee house concerts.
Both the Alpha and F.I.R.E. Retreats will also have music teams present during the weekend to provide music for Mass, praise and worship, and adoration.
Being part of Music Ministry provides the opportunity for growth not only in musical skills but also in spiritual formation. There will be Music Workshops thoughout the year to provide formation and training on Sacred Music, and a Music Retreat every semester for an opportunity to spend more time in prayer and contemplation. The student music ministries have grown a lot in the past year, and your involvement is essential to its continued growth. Come share your musical talent with the rest of the community as well with others who share your passion!
“The trumpeters and singers joined in unison, as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: ‘He is good; his love endures forever.’” - 2 Chronicles 5:13
