We are very excited to announce that we have hired a new Director of Sacred Music and Principal Organist here at Our Lady Star of the Sea!

Matthew Meloche comes to us after serving as the Director of Sacred Music and Principal Organist at the Cathedral of Ss. Simon and Jude in Phoenix, Arizona since 2013.

His work with sacred music is especially directed toward bringing people closer to Almighty God and to know and love His Son, Our Lord through the Church’s treasury of Sacred Music. Matthew is a known speaker in the field of sacred music, having spoken at several Church Music Association of America conferences and conventions over the years.

Matthew will begin working for us some time in mid June. His enthusiasm and love of sacred music will be a real inspiration for our community, and we look forward to working with him as he builds on the great foundation already here of Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, organ music and solid hymnody.
