Music Ministry

Music Ministry is one of our favorite ways to praise God and to enhance the Liturgy. Everyone is welcome! We have music for both instrumentalists and vocalists. We rehearse one hour prior to Mass in Muller Chapel. If you would like to sing or play at the 1pm, simply arrive by noon, and at 7pm for the 8pm Mass. Our campus ministers who coordinates our music ministry are Matthew Hall (mh968@cornell.edu) and Elizabeth Lyon (ell67@cornell.edu)
