Joe Master: Music ministry has been in Joe’s life for the past 40 years. A native of Bethlehem, PA, at age 13, he began playing the organ in his home parish church. He studied music at Moravian College in Bethlehem and was a long-time member of the Moravian College Choir. Joe has toured England, Moscow, Kiev, St. Petersburg, Prague and Germany with the college choir and came to appreciate the many cultures in these places as well as the composers and music indigenous to that country. After graduating from Moravian College in 1994, Joe continued singing with the college choir, accepted a position as senior accountant at Dun and Bradstreet, and worked part time as Music Director in a Lutheran Church. In 1997, Joe moved to Florida after accepting the position as Director of Music and Liturgy in the Roman Catholic Church. He remained in the same parish for 12 years. In 2015 Joe joined the music ministry as organist and also serves as our Director of Finance, as well as the Director of Business and Finance for St. Boniface Church in Sarasota. He is currently in the graduate program at Alverno College pursuing his Master’s degree in Sacred Music and Liturgy.
