Choirs

Adult Choir:

The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and we sing each week, September through June at the 9:15 a.m. Mass. We are also present for the Holy Week celebrations as well as Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. We also share in fellowship at social gatherings held a few times a year to give us the chance to enjoy the bonds of friendship that we have forged. You do not have to be a musician or know how to read music to be a part of the Adult Choir. The only required skill is to be a good listener...listening to those around you, listening to the direction of the director.

Cantors:

The Cantors of the parish lead the assembly in song at all liturgies when music is part of the celebration. A cantor must have a pleasant singing voice as well as a strong stage presence while leading the assembly. Rehearsals are held at a time convenient for both the cantor and the Director of Music.

Instrumentalists:

Parishioners who play a musical instrument proficiently are encouraged to share their gift with the assembly. Rehearsals with the Director of Music are scheduled at a time convenient for both. The number of times you choose to play is up to you.
