The Cure of Ars Music Ministry
A full-service auto body repair facility, R & U Auto Body has been operating out of its headquarters in Merrick, New York, for over 25 years. In addition to providing prompt and high quality auto repair services, R & U supports the community through multiple charitable initiatives. It maintains an active philanthropic partnership with the Cure of Ars Roman Catholic Church.
Led by pastor monsignor Francis J. Caldwell, Cure of Ars is committed to educating individuals in the tenets of the Roman Catholic faith and generally praising God through a combination of worship, prayer, and service. One of the ways that the church reaches out to its congregation and to the general public is through its Music Ministry.
The Cure of Ars Music Ministry operates under the direction of music director Sean Cotty, an active member of both the National Association of Pastoral Musicians and the Diocese of Rockville Centre Music Commission. Mr. Cotty goes to great lengths to ensure that all Cure of Ars ceremonies and events operate in accordance with relevant liturgical norms according to church documents. In addition to employing professionally trained cantors, the Cure of Ars Music Ministry supports both a youth and adult congressional choir.
