An important part of our worship experience is our music at Mass. It takes a fair number of people to do our best at leading the assembly in song. If you’re someone who likes to sing, our music ministry is set up to be somewhat flexible. We know that some people’s schedules change week to week or month to month. Sometimes they work every other weekend. That’s why we have this flexible policy: Attend either the Thursday evening rehearsal during the week or if you are more advanced – attend the Saturday rehearsal held every three weeks. This allows you to sing at any of the five English Masses on the weekend. You can rotate to different Masses each weekend. We know you are out there and the choir wants You to join us!
We have three choirs. Adult English, Adult Spanish, Children’s English.
Requirements for both Adult Choirs:
The most important requirement is a desire to serve our parish family musically. Additionally, you need to be able to hear a pitch and match the tone. Also you will need to pass an archdiocesan background check and Virtus as we have younger singers in our ministry and protection of the vulnerable is needed.
Please arrive 15 minutes early for your first rehearsal.
For the English Adult Choir Only: Rehearsals are Thursday at 7pm, but if you can sight-read and learn quickly, we have an optional advanced rehearsal every 3rd Saturday at 9:00 a.m. that covers the next 3 weekends of music. Unlike a usual 90-minute rehearsal, this one takes 3 to 4 hours. This first Saturday rehearsal is September 16, 2023. All rehearsals are held in the music room and last 90 minutes unless otherwise indicated.
Requirements for both Children’s Choirs:
The only requirement is a desire to serve our parish family musically and be in grades 2-8.
