Music Ministry

Good music makes a profound difference in the vibrant celebration of liturgy!  Please consider sharing your gifts of voice or instrument with the UD worshipping community.

Every Sunday Mass and every evening residence hall Mass has its own student led choirs and instrumental musicians.  If you are interested in joining a choir, speak to one of the student leaders at that Mass, or contact Mr. Jim Pera, Campus Minister for Liturgical Music at 937-229-2052.

Volunteer Musicians and Singers

Anyone is invited to share their gifts with our university community through song at campus liturgies. A team of students coordinates music for liturgy, and each team is always looking for singers and instrumentalists to join their musical group. Commitment is minimal (1 rehearsal and Mass each week).

Simply approach the Undergraduate Music Minister (UGMMs) at the particular Mass you wish to serve, and to express your interest. Or contact Jim Pera, Campus Minister for Liturgical Music, at 937-229-2052 or
