Music Ministry isn’t about performing or providing “accompaniment for Mass”… it’s a vital part of our worship, and helps the community participate more fully in the liturgy. There are several ways to inspire and help lead the community, whether on Sunday or at special times during the year. Music ministers should be passionate about their craft and how they can offer their skills and abilities in service of the community.  Rehearsal times and schedules vary.

  •        Sunday Ensembles - Our 9:00am, 11:00am, and 5:00pm Masses are led by vocal and instrumental ensembles of a variety of styles. These ensembles are also responsible for major liturgies (Christmas, Easter, etc.) as well as other special liturgies throughout the year (Mass of Remembrance, Thanksgiving, etc.). Time commitment includes a weekly evening rehearsal and other special rehearsals as needed. Due to the fast-paced schedule, an interview/audition is required.
  •        Youth Choir - Open to all young people of the parish in grades 3-8, the Youth Choir leads the community in song at the Sunday 9:00am monthly “Liturgy with Children,” the 4:00pm Mass on Christmas Eve, and the 9:00am Mass on Easter Sunday.  Rehearsals take place once a week in the afternoon, and extra rehearsals may be necessary for major events.  Registration and parental permission is required for this year-long commitment.
  •       Seasonal Choir - Want to participate but can’t make every Sunday? Our Seasonal Choir joins our regular Sunday Ensembles for Christmas, Holy Week, and Easter.  Several rehearsals are required around each event.
