Music Ministry

Our mission is to enrich, inspire, and engage the faith community in songs of celebration during our liturgy.  We will continually work to create a quality fine arts experience for our members, and encourage each member to strive for personal and group growth and excellence, while instilling a sense of community among our members.

All music ministers are expected to attend weekly rehearsals and arrive 45 minutes before the start of Mass to warm up and review the music for Mass.


Choir

Choir members sing at any of the three Masses (5 pm on Saturday, 9 am or 11 am on Sunday). Rehearsals are held weekly on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30 pm in the Chapel.  All voice parts are welcome, especially men. Singers range from grade 8 to adult.
Director: Ali Geisler Greene


Cantors

Cantors are soloists who lead the songs during Mass. All cantors must be reliable members of the Choir who go through an audition, introductory, and/or training period.
Trainer: Val Pernice


Orchestra

The orchestra accompanies the Choir at Sunday Masses and is comprised of students, adults, and professional musicians. Rehearsals are held Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30 pm in the church meeting room. Those who have played for a minimum of 2 years in a school band or orchestra, or have additional experiences are welcome to join. We are always looking for string, brass, woodwind, and percussion players to join us.
Director: Marcie Ewasko
Assistant: Francie Brann

The Youth Choir is comprised of young singers in grades 3-7. They sing approximately once a month during the school year at rotating Masses. Rehearsals are held from September through April on Thursdays from 7:00-8:00 pm.
