Brian Walters

Director of Music Ministry and Liturgies

Brian is the Director of Music & Liturgy at Ss Peter and Paul in Hoboken. Through vibrant and accessible music, singing can become a family language that can joyfully engage topics of faith within the home. Music also serves as nutrients for the seedlings of learning, and invites children and parents to grow together in love. 

"Sing, sing a song. Let the world sing along. Sing of love there could be; sing for you and me."
