Children's Choir is a youth choral program for students in grades 1-12 to help form them in the musical and liturgical arts. The choir will sing at the 9:30 AM Mass about one Sunday per month. Grades 1-3 will rehearse on Wednesdays from 4:30-5:10 PM, while grades 4-12 will rehearse on Wednesdays from 5:15-6:00 PM. No audition is required.
The Adult Choir consists of parishioners with differing degrees of musical skills united by our love of singing and our desire to praise God through music. We sing a wide range of music from traditional to modern. Choir members build their musical and vocal skills, learning from each other in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:00 PM with other seasonal/sectional rehearsals as-needed. We sing most Sundays, and at most Holy Day liturgies from September through May. Because of the amount of music, the choir must prepare, consistent attendance is necessary and expected. No audition is required.
Our cantors are parishioners who volunteer their time to help lead the assembly and proclaim the Psalm at our weekend and Holy Day Masses. A strong, pleasant singing voice and public speaking skills are needed. An audition is required. Contact the music director for specifics.
