The members of NPM serve the Catholic Church in the United States as musicians, clergy, liturgists, and other leaders of prayer. Pastoral musicians who are full-time, part-time, or volunteer music directors, choir members, cantors, and instrumentalists can view the website and attend conferences and training to develop their knowledge of liturgy and music.
