There are many opportunities for musicians to share their talents and skills with our parish:
Cantors/Psalmists/SongLeaders: Just as being a lector involves more than just reading the text, the role of the cantor involves more than just singing the music. These liturgical ministers are familiar with the scripture and use their musical abilities to bring the words of the psalms and the hymns to life. Cantors receive training and rehearse before Mass. It is helpful if the cantor can read basic music, but not necessary.
Shrine Choir: The Shrine Choir leads the music at the 11:30 a.m. Mass from September through June. Other events include Christmas Midnight Mass, Holy Week services, and the beautiful Lessons and Carols Advent Concert. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in room 109 of the school.
Children’s Choir: The Children’s Choir leads the music at the 9:30 a.m. Mass from September through May. Other events include The Christmas Eve 7:00 p.m. Mass, First Communion and the beautiful Lessons and Carols Advent Concert. Rehearsals are on Wednesdays after school from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. Children not attending Saint Catherine Labouré School are still welcome to join the choir on Sunday mornings at 9:00 p.m. in room 109 of the school.
Contemporary Choir: The Contemporary Choir sings year-round at the 7:00 p.m. Mass. All are welcome to join the choir by coming to the pre-Mass rehearsal at 6:15 p.m.
Musical Instrumentalists: Musicians are needed to enhance the beauty of our liturgies. Proficiency on the instrument is required as well as good sight-reading skills.
