Participating in music ministry allows the lay faithful the opportunity to share their God-given talent with the parish. There are many ways to be involved; whether by cantoring, singing in one of our choirs or by playing an instrument. "...the gifts we have we are given to share ..."
This is a 4-part choir that leads the music at Mass two times a year: Christmas Eve and all of Holy Week. The choir practices once a week for 6-8 weeks prior to these Holy Day Masses. You don't have to read music to be a part of choir ... we'll teach you! This group is open to anyone from 14 to 114 years of age.
This ensemble leads the music once a month at the 10 a.m. Mass, as well as special liturgies, such as Confirmation. This group consists mostly of cantors and those training to be cantors, but is open to all. This small choir sings throughout the year, and is also a good fit for those who play guitar or other instruments.
Organists/Pianists are a vital part of our ministry and provide the music that leads the congregation in worship at our Masses. Accompanists should possess intermediate to advanced piano playing skills, and be able to lead confidently.
Whatever you play...from the trumpet to the tambourine...there's a place for you in our music ministry. The addition of a flute, clarinet, violin, guitar, etc. adds beauty to our liturgies. If you play an instrument of any kind, please prayerfully consider sharing your talent with our parish.
