Doug has been singing along with the radio for as long as he can remember but began his music ministry in 1980 when he joined the St. Mark's choir after hearing them at mass one evening and being so taken with their harmony. He was welcomed, being the youngest member they'd seen in some time, and sang with them for ten years until he moved out of the parish. In 1991, he joined the choir at St. Peter, Schulte, and has been a choir member, folk guitar mass member and cantor there for over thirty years.
Tom Wierman became involved in parish music after moving to Wichita in 1983 for an accounting career. He served as a choir director three different times at the Church of the Magdalen before moving to Calgary for an Expatriate assignment in 2001. When returning from Calgary, Tom’s family joined St. Thomas Aquinas parish. He began serving as the 9:00 choir director in 2014 when that choir was formed. He is currently Director of Music at STA and 9:00 a.m. Choir Director.
Tom is a founding member of NPM Wichita, initially serving as Chapter Secretary from 2015-2017.
Tom holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and an MBA, both from Fort Hays State University.
