Sing praise to the LORD for his glorious achievement; let this be known throughout all the earth. Isaiah 12: 5 (NAB)
There are several opportunities for involvement within the music ministry at St. Patrick’s.
Resurrection Choir- Members of this choir lead music at parish funerals. Members are called in advance of funerals by the Music Director and attendance is not mandatory. The ensemble generally meets 30 minutes before each funeral to review music and practice. A flexible personal schedule is required because most funerals take place during the regular work day. All are welcome!
Sunday Choirs– St. Patrick’s Parish has two excellent Choirs that lead music at 8:45 and 10:30 on Sundays. Both ensembles sing the same literature and practice together on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. These two ensembles combine for the summer and sing at the 8:45 Mass, and also combine for special feasts, holy days, and special parish functions. While attendance at practices is not mandatory, it is strongly encouraged. Members should be able to sing in tune and have some knowledge of music. Contact the Director of Music to join our ensembles!
Instrumentalists- Advanced instrumentalists are encouraged to contact the Director of Music about participation within our ensembles.
Cantors– Advanced singers are encouragd to contact the Director of Music about the Ministry of Cantoring.
