Music is an integral part of worship at St. Paul's.  Our 10 a.m. Rite II Holy Eucharist service features the St. Paul's Choir, singing service music, hymns, and anthems of old and new, accompanied by our three-manual, 67-rank, 46-stop Rodgers organ.

The choir rehearses every Thursday during the program year, 7-9 p.m.  Anyone who wishes to join the choir is encouraged to attend.  Please contact our Music Director if interested. 

Recordings of the choir can be heard on our YouTube Channel.
