The music ministry leads the church in sung worship in a variety of styles. Within the music ministry, parishioners will find many ways to participate. Small ensembles of vocalists, cantors, or instrumentalists can be found leading worship at all the Sunday Masses. The larger, traditional choir with instrumentalists and cantor, lead sung worship at the 10:15 mass on Sunday. The children’s choir sings at mass about once a month and for the major feasts of the Church.
The music ministry is filled with a diverse group of individuals, some who read music and others who do not. The choirs support the sung prayer of the assembly but also form a close knit group of friends that enjoy singing and praying together. The choir and ensembles sing for the major feasts and sacraments as well as perform a variety of community outreach activities which in the past has included leading sing-a-longs at area nursing and retirement homes, as well as a Christmas carol concert at the Brookfield Zoo.
Choirs, cantors, and instrumentalists come together to sing and lead the music at the major feasts and special liturgies of the Church. There is a place for everyone in the music ministry.
