Who We Are:
Through our music ministry, we strive to meet the needs of our parishioners by creating a beautiful, prayerful and supportive musical environment for our liturgical Masses and events. Whether it be the joy of a wedding, consolation at a funeral, or the varied Masses of the liturgical year, our ministry is there for the subtle, yet profound support and expression of prayerful intent and the beauty of God’s great gift of music.
Our ministry consists of the Adult Choir, Contemporary Choir, Funeral Choir, Hand Bell Choir, Youth Choir, Cantors, and budding musicians who lead our liturgical celebrations.

What We Do:
The Adult Choir is the backbone of all the choirs and sing on Sundays at the 11:00am Mass the second, third and fourth Sundays from September - June, and either the 4:00pm or the 9:00am Mass the first Sunday of the month. We are looking for new members from ninth grade to adult. Rehearsals are flexible! The choir enjoys a close fellowship and support for each other. They enjoy singing favorite traditional hymns, contemporary hymns and special anthems. They are a devoted, warm and welcoming group.

The Contemporary Choir is an eclectic group of musicians of all ages that thoroughly enjoys bringing a broad range of musical styles to the liturgy. Folk, blues, gospel, contemporary Christian, traditional and even classic hymns all find their way into the choir’s repertoire, as long as they are fitted to the readings and the liturgy. Instrumentation includes guitar, piano, violin, acoustic and electric bass, drums, percussion instruments and others. The choir enjoys trying new approaches in making “a joyful noise unto the Lord!”.Contemporary Choir provides music for two Masses each month, often at the 4:00pm Vigil Mass.

The Youth Choir consists of members who are loaded with musical talent. They sing once per month during the school year at the 11:00am Mass. Their repertoire is varied, including upbeat music to formal choral works. They also sing prelude music before the Christmas Eve Mass. Several instrumental musicians who play piano and string instruments also play at various times during the year. Hand chimes have recently been added to enhance their sound.

Cantors are a very special group at the church. Individuals with a  strong singing ability who can lead others to sing are rare indeed! We are seeking new cantors to join us.
