  • 2019 Summer Choir

  • The Contemporary Choir sings at the 9:30 am Mass on Sundays and will continue to sing throughout the summer. We invite new members to join us for the summer,
    for a few Sundays, or even just one time to see what singing with the choir is like.

    There is a short rehearsal at 9:00 am before the Mass, and the list of music can be emailed to interested singers ahead of time so that they can listen to the music online before singing on Sunday.

    Please contact Elizabeth Stone, the music director if you are interested in joining, or if you have any questions. You can also just come on Sunday at 9:00 am.

    Archbishop Leonard P. Blair was the celebrant.

  • Women’s Ensemble

  • This choir is an auditioned group of singers. An ability to read and learn music quickly, sing in tune and blend well with other voices is required. This group sings at a Mass once a month and sings a wide variety of styles from chant and Latin Motels to contemporary music.

  • Instrumentalists

    We have a number of talented instrumentalists who play at Mass on a regular basis. We would like to have a few more instrumentalists so we can put together some small chamber groups to play occasionally at Mass.

  • Cantors

  • The cantors sing the responsorial psalm and lead the parish in singing the hymns and Mass parts. It is not necessary to sing every week. Rehearsal time is provided and audio recordings are made available for learning music. A brief meeting and audition is required.

  • Resurrection Choir

  • This choir provides an important ministry by singing for funerals and Memorial Masses. If you enjoy singing and are available during the week please contact Peggy Ridarelli at ridarelli@aol.com or Beth Stone .
