Welcome to ALMA/NPM

The Archdiocesan Liturgical Musicians’ Association, a chapter of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians (ALMA/NPM), is dedicated to the spirit of the liturgy envisioned by Vatican Council II.

We welcome all music ministers who strive to communicate the presence of the Holy One in the Christian assembly through the art and beauty of music. To this end, we support each other in our ministry through gatherings of prayer and fellowship, together with opportunities for educational and spiritual enrichment.

ALMA Youth Scholarship Awards

All youth music ministers from across the Archdiocese are invited to participate in the 2019 ALMA Youth Awards.  Students in Junior High and High School are welcome to compete for $400 and $500 scholarships, respectively. The scholarships are used for private study on their instrument or attendance at a music ministry camp. To enter, each participant composes an essay about their involvement in music ministry, and submits a letter of recommendation from a private teacher or church music minister. They also prepare three pieces to perform before a clinician and panel of judges.  The pieces include a hymn, a mass part (Sanctus or Agnus Dei) and a psalm response. Each student receives feedback from the clinician in a master class format, along with written comments from the panel. This year’s Youth Awards will take place on Saturday, March 16 at St. Gabriel Parish, Hubertus, WI. For more information, please contact the event coordinator Steven Senski at ssenski@stgabrielhubertus.org or 262-628-1141, ext 226.
