         Our Director of Music

The very talented Javier Márquez MM is our director of music. Javier is a dual degree graduate of Salem State University and a wonderful pianist, organist, singer and composer. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Javier lives in Lynn and performs in concerts, churches and orchestras all over the Northeast. On the first Thursday of most months, Javier, himself a polyglot of some nine languages, helps us offer a multilingual Taizé Service that is both musical and contemplative in a style that is simply holy and unique.


Juan and Joseph Báez

Juan Báez and his son, Joseph, are the amazing musicians who lead our bilingual Sunday music offerings at St Peter's-San Pedro on the last Sunday of each month.  Their combined talents unite our two languages in a beautiful and faith-filled offering.
