David Green began playing guitar for the new “Folk Masses” back in 1969 when he was a sophomore at St. Fidelis High School in Herman, PA (sadly, no longer in operation). He has been playing, singing, and writing liturgical music, as well as learning how to be an effective music minister from everyone with whom he has ministered, ever since. David has led and ministered music for large conferences, retreats, days of recollection, prayer meetings, weddings, funerals, baptisms, penitential services, and of course many, many Masses since then – probably over 1,000!
David has an M.A. in Theology from Duquesne University and a B.A. in English from St. Fidelis College Seminary. He and his wife, Paula, and their “special needs” adult son, Paul, live in Bluffton, SC. All three of them are active in the music ministry at St. Francis by the Sea Church on Hilton Head Island; we usually lead the music for the 9:00am Mass on the first Sunday of the month and the 5:30pm Saturday mass for the third weekend of each month, as well as other times. (Paul plays the keyboard by ear and is an essential part of the “Echoes of Heaven” music group there along with his parents and several other parishioners.)
David’s primary business is NetGreen Consulting, Inc. – a website development and Internet marketing company that he founded in 2005. He also helped to found OSPREY Village, Inc., a non-profit organization that seeks to provide independent living options for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in their area.
