Who's Part of the Music Ministry?

Cantors lead and energize the congregation in singing during worship.

The Music Ministry Choir leads the congregation in singing as well as provides special music typically at the Gift and Eucharist parts of the Mass. Choral music performed is three to four part voices ranging from traditional to contemporary.

Instrumentalists play solos or accompany cantors, choirs, and the congregation in song.

The Bell Choir ministers to the congregation through music.
