The St. Patrick Music Ministry welcomes all singers at all levels of talent. Music reading ability is not mandatory–but a love for singing and the desire to have fun is! A variety of instrumentalists are welcome as well (guitars, bass, drums, woodwinds, brass, strings, etc.).
Here are some specific ways that You can get involved:
Adult Choir: Voices in Praise
Voices in Praise sings weekly, usually alternating between the 9:30 and 11:30 Masses, from September through May. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
Youth Ensemble: Genesis
Genesis Youth Ensemble is for students in grade 2 and up. The choir usually assists in leading the music at liturgy 2 times per month throughout the school year as well as for special celebrations on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and Easter Sunday. Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 6:00 – 6:45 p.m.
