The mission of the music ministry is to serve the expression of faith. All parishioners, who have been given the gift of music are invited to join in singing or playing an instrument at anyone of our six weekend Masses or daily 8:30 am Masses. Professional pianists, organists and cantors are always welcomed.
Choirs: The parish choir enhances the prayer life of the assembly through music. They also prepare special music which reflects the particular celebration.

Instrumentalist & Cantors: Pianists, organists, guitarists, bass players, string or brass instrumentalists for Sunday Masses and even daily Masses are needed. Cantors are needed who read music, have well-trained voices and can lead the community in weekend and daily Masses.
Resurrection Choir: A group of singers, who support, comfort and pray through song during Funeral Masses. Singers are called from a list a day or two before the Funeral Mass.
Daily Mass Musicians: Pianists, organists and cantors are people who lead the singing at the Monday-Friday 8:30 am Masses.
Musical Artists: Acting, singing and memorizing music is required to be involved in our shows. Stage managers and crew, builders, lighting technicians and painters are always needed.
Cantor: The cantor's role is to lead the congregation in song, and sing the responsorial psalm at Sunday Masses, funerals and weddings. A pleasant voice, ability to read music and a willingness to practice on one's own are the disciplines necessary to be a cantor. The music director auditions and trains all cantors.
