The Handbell Choirs are open to those of high school age or older.  They play at various liturgies and celebrations throughout the year at Saint Margaret Church and Saint Mary Magdalen Mission.  Jubilate Ringers (three octaves) rehearse on Monday evenings at Saint Margaret Church from 6:00 pm to 7:00pm. Westminster Ringers (five octaves) rehearse also on Monday evenings at Saint Margaret Church from 7:15 pm to 8:30 pm.

Youth Handbell Choir
We would like to form a handbell choir just for high school students.  Music reading ability is helpful but not essential.  If interested, please call the music office.  Rehearsals and performances will not conflict with those for the Teen Choir at Saint Mary Magdalen. 

Instrumentalists
There are many liturgies throughout the year that feature music utilizing instruments other than the organ and piano.  If you are proficient on a particular instrument (trumpet, flute, violin, etc) and would like to extend your talent to the music ministry, please contact Tom Keesecker in the music office, 410-838-6969, ext. 136.

Donations
Many of our major feasts and celebrations utilize more extensive instrumental ensembles such as brass and tympani.  We welcome any donations that would help underwrite the cost of these musicians. Your donations could be in the form of a memorial to a loved one or to honor a friend or family member.  All donations will be recognized in the bulletin.

If you have questions regarding our music ministry, or would like additional information on joining one of our choirs, we invite you to call the music office, 410-879-2670 ext. 136.
