The primary focus of the adult choir is to support the assembly in song. In addition to leading the assembly in song, the choir also learns sacred choral repertoire to add to the sung prayer at liturgies. Everyone high school age or older is invited. You do not need to know how to read music to sing in the Adult Choir. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings in the lower level of Berry Hall.
This is a great opportunity for Children in grades 3-8 to actively participate and role model as they lead the congregation in song at various liturgies throughout the year. All children are welcome. Rehearsals run from mid-September to mid-May.
The role of the cantor is to lead the sung portion of worship of the congregation. Vocal music leadership is essential.
The adult handbell choir adds to the musical accompaniment at liturgies. The choir is composed of 7 to 11 ringers. The ability to read music is essential. Rehearsals are Thursdays in the church. This ensemble is by audition.
Instruments are used to accompany and enhance the sung prayer at Mass. Periodically small ensembles (i.e. brass, string, or mixed ensembles) are used to add to the accompaniment as well. Instrumentalists are encouraged to come forward. If you are unsure whether or not the music matches your level or ability, call us and we will help answer your questions.
The parish owns a variety of percussion instruments. These rhythm instruments are waiting for beat keepers to step forward to play them. You do not need to read music but the ability to keep a steady beat is a must.
