Music Ministry

Below are the groups that serve in our music ministry:

Music Accompanying Sunday Mass

Saturday, 4:30 pm Mass & Sunday, 11:00 am Mass - Traditional Choir

This group consists of a volunteer choir accompanied by the organ, piano and strings. Visiting instrumentalists also join us for special events!

Our selections come from our Ritual Song and Gather hymnals, as well as special pieces.

This choir has both a weekday evening and Sunday rehearsal.

Sunday 5:00 pm Mass - Rock Mass

This group consists of electric guitars, drums, piano, synthesizer, brass, and flute, as well as a choir made up of youth and young adults from our parish.

This group incorporates the widest variety of contemporary Christian music, including popular praise and worship favorites. We also include as songs found in Ritual Song and Gather. Our 7th and 8th graders have joined the Rock Mass and will sing periodically during the year.
