Music

 

Since music is an integral part of our praise and worship, the parish aspires to offer a wide range of music through the weekend and daily liturgies, and various other liturgical celebrations. Under the direction of Dave Knerr, the parish currently has choirs at the Sunday 8:30, 10:00, and 11:30 am Masses, cantors, and instrumentalists.

 

 

 Volunteers are always welcomed for the choirs and as instrumentalists.

Adult Choir

8:30 choir

         

10:00 choir

The 10:00 Choir sings at the 10:00 am Mass on Sundays throughout the year.  Rehearsals are on Sunday mornings at 8:30 am in the Parish Center. For more information, contact Dave Knerr. 

 

11:30 choir

            

Children's choir

           

Cantors

Cantors proclaim the psalms and are the leaders of song at all weekend and holy day liturgies.  They encourage the assembly's singing and are responsible for teaching new songs and acclamations to the assembly.  A pleasant singing voice and good public speaking skills are required.  Cantors may be scheduled at their convenience.  For more information, contact Dave Knerr.

 

Instrumentalists

In addition to the instrumentalists who accompany the 8:30 and 11:30 am choirs, we also seek proficient organists and pianists to support the singing at our other weekend and holy day masses, as well as wedding and funerals. For more information, contact Dave Knerr.
