St. Mary Parish has an active music ministry in which parish members are encouraged to join. Choirs sing from after Labor Day through Corpus Christi Sunday. Watch the bulletin for rehearsal announcements.
Please contact our Music and Liturgy Department with any questions and if you are interested in being a part of St. Mary’s Music Ministry.
Cantate Domino is the adult choir of St. Mary Parish. Cantate Domino leads the assembly in a variety of musical styles each weekend. Mass schedule varies. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM in the east wing of church. No previous musical experience is required, but singers do need to match pitch and meet with the director. All singers and instrumentalists from high school age through adulthood are welcome!
*Cantate Domino is Latin for “Sing to the Lord.”
Laudation is a musical ensemble for our youth singers and instrumentalists (high school and college age). This group is responsible for music ministry at the 10:30 AM Mass on the second Sunday of the month during the school year. Rehearsals are held on Sundays (determined at the beginning of the year.) No previous musical experience is required for singers, but they do need to match pitch. Instrumentalists will need to meet with the director, but a good rule is to have played for several years on your instrument. All singers and instrumentalists welcome!
Children's Choir is a musical ensemble for all parish children in grades 3 through 8. This group rehearses on Wednesdays at 5:30 PM in the lower level of the parish office, and serves as the choir for one weekend Mass on the fourth Sunday of each month. This choir also sings for the Festival of Lessons and Carols, as well as serves the local community in song at a nursing home each spring. No previous musical experience is required; but singers do need to match pitch. All singers and instrumentalists are welcome! Come, join us and sing for the Glory of God!
The Resurrection Choir sings for funerals and for one 8:00 AM Sunday Mass each month. Rehearsals are the 2nd Thursday of the month at 10:00 AM in the church (prior to the Senior Social), or prior to each funeral. Singers do need to have a flexible schedule to sing for funerals during the day. No previous musical experience is necessary, but singers do need to match pitch. All singers and instrumentalists are welcome!
Cantors proclaim the Psalms at Mass and lead congregational singing. Strong vocal music skills are necessary, especially to sing solo and sometimes unaccompanied. Cantors meet regularly (monthly or bi-monthly) with the Director of Liturgy and Music for training in their ministry. Cantor auditions are scheduled with the director. Vocalists young and old are encouraged to answer the call to this ministry.
