Due to a low number of registrants for our planned Youth Music Ministry on Saturday, November 18, at St. Mark's, Hyattsville, we have decided to cancel the event. We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause.


We still think it is important to provide something in the future for our youth music ministers, and are open to suggestions from you about possible dates, times, venues, formats, etc.  What would best serve the young musicians at YOUR parish?  Please forward whatever ideas you may have to Henry Bauer, Chapter Director at  Thank you for your interest!



As a new endeavor, our chapter executive board is holding open meetings on the second Monday of each month for members to discuss the work of our chapter.

This is an opportunity for you to offer your suggestions and volunteer your time and talent. Meeting times will alternate between lunch time and evening so that members may be able to come to attend at least some of the meetings. Below are the dates we have reserved for upcoming meetings. Mark your calendar now so you won't miss them! Locations will be announced prior to each meeting.
