The choir’s primary duty at Mass is to lead the assembly in song. It is not necessary to have any previous musical training, although singers should be able to carry a tune. Instrumentalists who wish to join the music ministry should have at least high-school level proficiency and need to audition. Cantors are also selected by audition.
The choir rehearses every Sunday at 10:00 AM in the choir room, and at 9:30 AM in the weeks leading up to Christmas and Easter. A seasonal youth choir and instrumental ensemble performs at the 5:00 PM Christmas Eve Mass and the 10:45 Easter Sunday Mass. The current music list is available online. Practice videos for the psalms are online as well.
