Accompanists and Instrumentalists are teens or adults who accompany the choirs and/or cantors on piano, organ, guitar, woodwinds, brass, strings, or percussion at weekend Sunday Masses, and/or special liturgies. Previous training and ability required, as well as regular and special rehearsals.
Cantors are skilled singers (adult or teen) who lead the assembly in song, especially when a choir is not present, and who sing the responsorial psalm and gospel acclamation verses, and other special acclamations that are used in the liturgy. Previous training and ability required, as well as regular and special rehearsals.
Music Ministry for Funerals (Resurrection Choir) is open to anyone who is interested and available, especially during the weekdays. Rehearsals are held 30 minutes before a funeral liturgy. This ministry provides an essential ministry of hospitality and support to families in their time of grief.
Sunday Morning Music Ministry is a committed energetic group of adults and teens who provide the musical leadership at the 9:00 am Sunday morning Mass. The music is an eclectic mix of contemporary, traditional, and multicultural music. All singers, cantors, accompanists, and instrumentalists for the Saturday evening Vigil and Sunday morning Masses rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm in the Church. We'd like to see more parishioners come forward so that we could form a second group to serve the 10:30 am Mass. The rehearsal time would be the same. Come join us!
Sunday Evening Music Ministry (Cornerstone) is a dynamic group of adults and teens who rehearse at 5:00 pm each Sunday in preparation for the 6:30 pm Mass, as well as once a month on a Monday night. The music has a contemporary and upbeat sound in the Praise and Worship style with varied instrumentation.
