Director of Music Job Posting; Thank You Katherine Florian

St. Brigid of Kildare Parish would like to thank Katherine Florian, Director of Liturgy and Music at St. Brigid of Kildare Parish for her eight years of service here. Katherine will be relocating to the Chicago area in early December 2022. During her time here, Katherine oversaw all of our parish music ministries, including the adult choir, adult contemporary group, children’s choir, youth ensemble, cantors and instrumentalists. She directed and performed music for our liturgical schedule as well as sacramental events. She also served as the chair of the Worship and Spiritual Life Committee, overseeing the promotion and development of our church environment for the worship of God and the spiritual life of St. Brigid Parish. 

Katherine says “I’ve loved collaborating with the parish staff, they’ve been wonderful to work with and so supportive of me. I’ve loved working with all of the dedicated and talented volunteer musicians of our parish. St. Brigid is blessed with so many musicians of all ages who give so much of their time and talent to make our liturgies special.”

“I have especially enjoyed working with the young people of our parish and encouraging them to share their musical gifts with their parish. It’s been wonderful to see our once elementary-age students who began as members of our children’s choir and school cantors, now serving as musicians at their college parishes.” 

“I would like to thank Msgr. Hendricks for giving me this incredible opportunity to serve in this role at St. Brigid. He has been incredibly kind, supportive and encouraging throughout my time here.”

St. Brigid of Kildare Parish is grateful for Katherine’s talent and hard work at our parish, and we wish her the best in her future.
