Apostolist Music is the young adult music ministry of the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York City. We are a group of musicians seeking a contemporary interpretation of liturgical music that is inspired by the Gospels and informed by our Catholic tradition.
Founded in 2009, our St. Paul Young Adult Choir & Ensemble sings and plays for the Sunday 5:15 pm Mass every week. Under the musical direction of Garrett Taylor, we select and perform both well-known traditional hymns as well as contemporary Catholic liturgical music. We also feature original psalm settings and mass parts by resident composer Christopher Tse. We are planning make our entire collection of 80+ original contemporary psalm settings available for a small fee via this site, so we can share our work with other faith communities.
If you are in New York City, join us for our 5:15 pm Young Adult Mass on Sundays. Our home parish is located on 60th St & 9th Ave in Midtown Manhattan.
We are proud to be part of a vibrant community of Catholic young adults in New York City. For more information about our broader young adult ministry, please visit our main site at Apostolist.com.
Here is a video of our young adult choir & ensemble performing an mediation piece -- "Our Pray for You" by Isabel Rivera & Christopher Tse -- during our Mass on September 11, 2011 to pray for the victims of 9/11.
