Music plays a very important part in our worship.  There is a mechanical action pipe organ situated in a gallery at the west end of the church.

The organist, Paul Mullen, completed the Archbishop of Dublin’s Certificate in Church Music in 2009 and achieved LTCL Recital Diploma in 2012.  Paul is continuing his organ studies with Dr. David Adams at the Royal Irish Academy of Music.

Jacqueline Mullen, who graduated with an MA in Sacred Music Studies from Bangor University, Wales directs the choir. The choir ministers in song during services, assists in the congregational singing and has an important role in enabling the assembly to learn new hymns and songs.
We explore church music from different eras, genres and places. New choir members are always welcome. We practise at 9.30 am on Sunday mornings.

The organ was built by Peter Conacher & Co in 1904.  It was rebuilt in 1993 by Derek Verso and further work was carried out in 2011.

There are a number of talented musicians within the church who play various instruments and their participation in worship from time to time is appreciated.
The musicians are also available to play for other services such as weddings and funerals.
We are happy to meet with couples planning a wedding to discuss music (organ or piano).


Contact Jacqueline Mullen (087 2329269) or email  music@stpatricksgreystones.ie for more information about any aspect of music in the church.
