Consider being a part of one of the following groups:

The Sunday Choir. The Sunday Choir sings at the 10:30 a.m. Mass from September through May, as well as Christmas and Easter vigils. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:15 p.m. We invite all voice types and ages to join us, no experience at all is necessary. This is an incredibly warm and friendly group. Sunday Choir sings a great variety of styles, and focuses on healthy technique and singing from the heart! Come try a rehearsal with us and meet new people!

Youth Choir. Youth Choir meets on Mondays from 4:45-5:15 p.m. on Faith Formation days during the school year. Ages 6-13 are encouraged and most welcome! We sing at Family Liturgies throughout the year, as well as Christmas and Easter.

The Contemporary Group. Contemporary Choir meets once a month, usually the first Monday of the month from 5:45-6:45 p.m. and sings/plays the 4:00 p.m. Mass on the second Saturday of the month. All voice types welcome, as well as instrumentalists and guitar players! This is a great way to get involved with the Music Ministry with a small commitment. Join us!
