Our church is home to two extraordinary instruments that together provide a diverse sound within each Liturgical celebration at Saints Peter and Paul.
SKINNER PIPE ORGAN
Saints Peter and Paul is home to one of Hudson County’s most prized works of art- the Skinner Pipe Organ. First played in 1929, this original E.M. Skinner Pipe Organ still accompanies our congregation’s singing at each Sunday Mass. This instrument has 3 Manuals, 22 ranks, and about 1,500 pipes. Tonal highlights include remarkable 8’ Trumpets, 16’ Contra Oboe, 8’ Clarinet, and beautiful Flutes in both the Swell and Choir. Under the care and curation of the Peragallo Organ Company.
Our worship is also accompanied by our stunning Estonia Piano. Designed in the Republic of Estonia on the Baltic Sea, this piano features the best of European craftsmanship and brilliant sound. The piano allows our Music Ministry to feature a rich diversity of music in each of our Masses. The piano can also be heard at various concerts and recitals held in our parish each year.
Music is a Part of Our Parish Life
Our Parish’s vibrant Music Ministry seeks to serve the spiritual needs of people from all walks of life in our community.
Our Masses feature both traditional and contemporary music, encouraging joyful and prayerful participation at each Liturgical celebration. Our worship music welcomes the stranger, comforts the hurting, uplifts the spirit, and connects us to the presence of God through the Gospel and in the Eucharist.
Music is provided at four Masses each weekend:
Normal Schedule: Saturdays 5 pm; Sundays 9 am, 10:30 am, 12 pm
Summer Schedule: Saturdays 5 pm; Sundays 10 am, 11:30 am
