The cantor greets the congregation, announces the hymns, leads the congregation in song, proclaims the psalm and gospel acclamation verse, and sings solos on occasion. The role of the cantor is part leader, and part soloist, but never both at the same time! Cantors rehearse and are scheduled based on their availability. Our cantors range from trained professional singers to amateur singers with strong voices and good musical instincts. The ability to read music is a plus, but not required for this ministry.

Rehearsals: individually scheduled
Mass: scheduled for 5:00pm, 8:30am, and feast days

We welcome instrumental musicians and realize the great contribution they make to the liturgy. If you have a solid background in playing an instrument and would like to assist in the parish music ministry, contact one of our Ministers of Music.

The Children's Choir is comprised of students from the parish who are in grades 3-8. Learning how to read music and how to sing with good vocal technique is addressed in this young choir. The children also learn about their faith through the texts of the music that they sing. Besides singing at Sunday liturgies, the Children's Choir sings for special feasts throughout the year such as Christmas Eve, Holy Thursday, and Easter Sunday.

Rehearsals: Tuesdays at 3:30pm
Mass: alternating schedule

Parishioners who are in high school or older are encouraged to join this group. The ability to read music is not necessary for membership.
