Music is an extremely important part of our prayer and of the liturgy. The purpose of music ministry is to create a space where ALL people may encounter the living God through the art of music. The primary role of pastoral musicians is to lead and accompany the communal song of the assembled people of God. Our comprehensive program enables those who are called to this ministry to exercise their gifts in service to the church and the assembly.
The adult choir provides musical leadership at Sunday and holy day liturgies, as well as occasional
performances. The choir’s primary duty at Mass is to lead the assembly in song, although there is also a place for choral meditations. Previous musical training is not required; and members range from high school through adult. There is a brief warm-up before Mass and practice on Sunday morning following Mass.
Junior Choir allows 3rd graders and up to develop a sense of ministry, to learn basic choral techniques, and to assist the congregation in music.
Various instruments can be used, either regularly or on special occasions, to augment choral and congregational singing. Instrumentalists need to have at least High School level proficiency. Improvisation skills are useful, but not necessary.
This group provides a mix of traditional and contemporary music at the 8:30 a.m. Mass. For more information or to participate, please contact Choir Director (Cathy Charity) @ music@
