Music Minstry


Introducing ...................


To My New Parish Family,

I am so very excited to begin working here at Good Shepherd Parish. A lifelong Catholic, I grew up at St. Anne Parish in Marlborough. For as long as I can remember, I followed my mom up into the choir loft every Sunday. I’ve been hooked on church music ever since! I received a Bachelor’s degree in music from Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ (one of the nation’s foremost schools for studying sacred music) and a Master’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I got my professional start in musical theatre, having directed musicals for the Weston Friendly Society for the Performing Arts, the River’s Edge Arts Alliance, the Summer Performing Arts Collaborative (SPArC), and Hudson High School. Previous parishes where I have worked as Director of Music include St. Bernadette in Northborough, and St. Matthias in Marlborough. If you have ever considered being involved in the music ministry, please take this as your sign that the time is now! Your voice isn’t as bad as your 4th grade teacher led you to believe, I promise! Music, unlike any other force, draws us closer to God and connects us to scripture. Singing praise to God is a powerful experience unlike any other, and I hope you’ll seriously pray on whether or not God may be calling you to join our ministry. I look forward to meeting you all! Please don’t be afraid to come up after Mass and introduce yourself!
