Sr. Mary Jane Wagner St. Joseph Convent, Milwaukee

More about Sister Mary Jane:

“Being a liturgical musician is as natural to me as breathing – I have done it all my professional life. What I appreciate about serving on the ALMA-NPM Board is the exchange among colleagues. We are all committed to creating the best conditions possible to help our assemblies pray and sing more authentically. We are ever in search of the ways to connect with and to support more fully our friends and colleagues throughout the archdiocese. As an organ teacher, I am grateful to have students eager to learn the art of leading the assembly in sung prayer, to accompany choirs and cantors and to inspire all through performing appropriate organ repertoire.”







Deanna Page Tritz, Secretary Heart of the Nation and St. Benedict Parish, Fontana, WI

More about Deanna:

Deanna has been a liturgical musician for more than 30 years. She is currently a co-director at St. Benedict Parish in Fontana and a director for television mass Heart of the Nation.

“Being involved with the board has enlightened me to the vast amount of talent within our Archdiocese,” Deanna said. “Not only are the musicians brilliant and accomplished, but they are genuinely goodhearted and passionate about what they do. ALMA has been an incredibly valuable resource for it’s members and the people in the Milwaukee Archdiocese.”
