Thank You & Welcome! We would like to thank Nickie Riley for doing such a wonderful job as our interim organist for the last two months. Her gifts and passion have helped our music department to continue to grow and thrive. We are grateful to Nickie for stepping seamlessly into the role of interim, especially at such an important and busy time of the year. With that being said, we are excited to announce that Matthew Ganong has joined us as our Organist and Associate Music Director.
