Patrick Mernagh

Director of Music Ministries

I have been playing piano and organ since I was six and ten respectively, and have been privileged to play in New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, and Canada and Spain. My background includes international music, chant, and choral music, and I am equally at ease on both piano and organ. After five years of service in the congregation of the Legionaries of Christ, I discerned that God was calling me elsewhere, and have found an opportunity to serve the Church through my gift of music. A native of Akron, I'm glad to be back in the Buckeye State after ten long years travelling the world.
