Music

“Christ always invites us, however, to enter into song, to rise above our own preoccupations, and to give our entire selves to the hymn of his Paschal Sacrifice for the honor and glory of the Most Blessed Trinity.” –Sing to the Lord, no. 14.

 

Welcome to St. Michael’s music ministry. We invite you to join in this important ministry within the Liturgy. As music ministers, we are called to lead and enter into song with the congregation. We invite the assembly to join as one in glorifying God through music. Please consider sharing your musical gifts with our St. Michael community.

Joining Music Ministry

There are several ways one can join in our music ministry community: as a cantor, accompanist/instrumentalist or choir/group member.

Choir/Group Member: There are two groups: 5pm and 11am. Each group sings weekly at their respective Liturgy. Rehearsals for both groups are Thursday evenings at 7pm in the Church, Sept-May. If interested in joining as a vocalist, please contact us and we can get you situated with an appropriate group.

Cantors: Individuals may also serve as cantors at the 8:30am Mass. Cantors are scheduled on a rotation. These individuals feel comfortable singing before a congregation by his or herself with an accompanist.

Accompanists/Instrumentalists: Accompanists are important in leading and sustaining the music for the voices. Instrumentalists add to the music and elevate the worship. Instrumentalists, pianists and organists who would like to serve are encouraged to contact us.
