Music in the Catholic parish of St. Stephen's and Nicholas - Manor Park,  is diverse and wide ranging to serve the needs of the parish. Singers and instrumentalists are encouraged at all ages and all levels to take part under the leadership of Shea Lolin the Musical Director. Although Manor Park is Shea's home parish, it was not until 2010 that he officially became the Director of Music there. He has helped to develop several groups of instrumentalists as well as to teach organ and voice-craft to enable individuals to participate fully in the ministry of music.
High Mass (sung Mass) is celebrated at each of the three weekend Masses. Settings by Schutte, Lolin and Haugen in the vernacular have been contrasted with the Missa de Angelis. The parish enjoys singing an eclectic repertoire of hymns both old and new. These are often chosen to suite the style of the group as well as the liturgical calendar.
Many individuals both trained and untrained have sung psalms at the 11 am mass. Nonetheless, should you wish to join the choir under the most talented Shea, just speak with him after the 11 am mass.
