St. Juan Diego Music Ministry consists of those individuals within our parish whom God has blessed with musical talent and the skill to use those talents to lead others in prayerful song. This ministry has something for any type of musician from children and adults who love to sing to participating in instrumental music ministry whether it be piano, percussion, guitar and more. Truly we are blessed at SJD to have been given such a vibrant, participatory and exciting ministry.

PowerPoint operators run the software that projects the mass responses and songs overhead. The level of participation of the congregation in all aspects of the Liturgy is much greater when the words are easy to locate. Becoming a PowerPoint operator is an easy process and is a vital role for all Liturgies.
