Catherine came to us in November 2018 from Northport, New York.  (How about that..)

Catherine wanted to be in a warmer climate for retirement.  Catherine had served  as Director of Music  at a Presbyterian Church in New York for 15 years. In addition, she was a private piano teacher preparing her students for recitals and state and national competition. 

Catherine fit right in with the choir.  They worked very hard pulling together some special music for Advent and Christmas.

We are looking forward to a year of worship with Catherine.
