  • Music Ministry

    At Ohio Dominican University, music plays a very important role in our liturgical celebrations.

    Music is integral to Catholic worship. It allows us to express our belief in a unique and inspiring way. The goal of ODU's music ministry is to involve and assist the community in worship. What is most important about this ministry is your participation! 

    If you have an interest in music, a talent for singing or playing instruments, or ideas about how to improve our worship on campus, let us know at campusministry@ohiodominican.edu.

    Chapel Cantors and Choir Leaders

    If you are interested in singing in our Chapel Choir for Mass on Sundays, we invite you to contact Fr. Paul at collotop@ohiodominican.edu and he will forward your name to Daniel Salmonowicz, our Chapel Musician. 

    Participants in Chapel Choir do not need to be Catholic – all students are welcome to join in our music ministry.
