    Welcome to St. Joachim's Music Ministry

    St. Joachim Catholic Church, Costa Mesa California
    Under the direction of Andrew Everson, St. Joachim Music Ministry is dedicated to enhancing the worship experience through of multitude of musical styles. Whether it be a traditional organ with four-part vocal harmony or a contemporary ensemble of guitar, piano and violin, this ministry strives to express the glory of Our Lord through voice and instrument. Even youth will find their place in this music ministry though the Youth Choir - a high-energy praise group with great respect for Catholic liturgy.

    Our mission is to serve this parish community by providing the best music possible, to enhance our liturgies and give greater glory to God our Creator. We seek to provide music that is appropriate for Catholic liturgy while at the same time engages the congregation in full and active participation in responses, acclamations and inspired songs. To us, each rehearsal and Mass is an opportunity to serve Christ by serving His people here at St. Joachim. With God's help, and the prayers of this community, we hope that our ministry will strengthen the faith of all who enter St. Joachim Church.
