MUSIC MINISTRY

OF SAINTS PETER AND PAUL: 

 

Our Roman Catholic choral program is a vibrant part of the parish. Our music program offers instruction for all ages. The curriculum builds the foundations of  good vocal production, music  theory,  sight-singing,  and  diction.  The most important group of singers in this parish is the congregation. The full, active participation by the congregation is the primary “choir” of the parish.

 

 

The Cantors

 

lead the music ministry at every Mass that is sung. This includes the Parish School Mass, weddings and funerals. Each cantor has a weekly private rehearsal to prepare for their ministry. Cantors may be from the 4th Grade to adults.

 

 

The Contemporary Ministry

 

provides a wonderful opportunity to experience a variety of contemporary music. Vocalists and musicians with a variety of musical instruments combine to create a contemporary setting for our hymns during Mass. The ensemble ministers once per month for a Saturday 6:00 p.m. Mass. Rehearsals are once on Sunday evenings, and on Saturday before Mass.

 

 

 

The Intergenerational Choir 

 

provides music for Christmastide and Holy Thursday, Good Friday Liturgy, the Great Vigil of Easter and Easter Day. This group is made up of people from all the above ministries and additional singers from the community at large. Rehearsals are usually 4 to 5 weeks before liturgies. Anyone who is interested is welcome.

 

The Resurrection Choir 

 

is a group of singers who lead the music at all funeral masses. The choir rehearses a 1/2 hour before each liturgy. We can always use more people who can learn music with sufficient practice and have time for this ministry.

 

We encourage your participation in any of these ministries.  Please consider offering your time to enhance the liturgies at our parish.
