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 Scott Paeplow,  the Campus Minister for Liturgical Music at 937-229-2052.

UGMM's (pronounced UHGg-hmmz), aka Undergraduate Music Ministers

Able to sing/play well? Interested in learning more about Catholic Liturgy and liturgical music? Interested in getting more involved with UD's Music Ministry program?  If so, apply to be an UGMM!

UGMMs not only co-lead a group of other students at one of the Masses, but they also get to take a course to grow in their understanding of liturgical ministry and leading a group. And each UGMM receives a stipend for his/her time and effort!

Applications for the 2015-16 cohort of UGMMs are being accepted until Tuesday, April 7. For more information contact Scott Paeplow,  the Campus Minister for Liturgical Music at 937-229-2052.

Volunteer Musicians and Singers

All are 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 Scott Paeplow,  the Campus Minister for Liturgical Music at 937-229-2052.

The Chapel Choir

For special University-wide occasions, a special choir is convened. If you would like to be part of this Chapel Choir please contact Scott Paeplow,  the Campus Minister for Liturgical Music at 937-229-2052.
