Music Ministry News

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. I am pleased to announce that Laura Rau, previously the associate director of music at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic parish in Leawood, Kansas, will be our next music director here at St. Gerald Parish. Laura will begin her work with us on Monday, January 9. At St. Michael the Archangel, Laura directed rehearsals and music theory classes for children enrolled in the Choir School program. She also prepared cantors and accompanists for weekend liturgies, collaborating with the director of music in the parish choir.

Laura has received the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Kansas. She also holds degrees from Wichita State University and the University of Notre Dame. Please keep Laura and her husband in your prayers during this time of transition. I look forward to formally introducing her to our parish community in January.
-Fr. Mark
