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.
Small Contemporary Ensemble
This group leads the assembly in song on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month at the 9:30 Mass. Vocalists and other instrumentalists are welcome to join us.
St. Cecilia Women’s Choir
This choir normally leads music once per month at various liturgy times. Rehearsals are usually 2 to 3 weeks before the scheduled liturgy.
Bell Choir: St. Patrick Ringers
Play handbells with adults and youth. Ability to read music is helpful, but bell playing experience is not mandatory. Rehearsals are on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.
Funeral Musicians: Resurrection Choir
Sing at funeral liturgies which are usually scheduled Monday through Friday at 9:00 a.m. This is a wonderful way to minister to grieving families and friends. The choir rehearses briefly before each funeral liturgy.
