About Us


The National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM) fosters the art of musical liturgy. The members of NPM serve the Catholic Church in the United States as musicians, clergy, liturgists, and other leaders of prayer.

The Cleveland Chapter is comprised of primarily church musicians in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area.  While authorized by the national organization and sponsored in part by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cleveland, it is open to musicians and friends of all faith backgrounds.  In addition to sponsoring gatherings, workshops and musical events, the chapter is a source of substitute musicians and a resource for all.
