WE HAVE A NEW MUSIC DIRECTOR!
Please join Fr. Eric, Fr. Mathew and staff, as we welcome Jeff Daignault to our parish! Jeff has accepted the position of Music Director here at St. Joseph Parish, and we think you will all be very happy with him. His first day was May 24th, and he is currently playing at all masses this weekend.
Jeff comes to St. Joseph following years of service in the Archdiocese of Chicago. Most recently, he served as music director for Saint Francis de Sales Parish, a community of 4,400 families in Chicago's northwest suburbs where he directed and managed two adult choirs, a handbell ensemble, a rotation of teen bands and three children's choirs along with organizing and arranging music for 12-15 piece instrumentals ensembles for seasonal liturgies.
A pianist, arranger and composer, Jeff began his music ministry traveling nationally and internationally as an accompanist for soloists and ensembles. With the goal of including as many people of all ages as possible, Jeff approaches music ministry in the church by seeking to open the door for participation as widely as possible, creating or adjusting music to fit the gifts of all who step forward to serve.
Jeff is married to Vickie, an actress and singer whose work has taken her many places from New York to the Netherlands.
Welcome Jeff and Vickie, we are excited to have you here!
Please stay tuned to the bulletin and website for more information regarding our music ministry.
