Music Ministry

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.

OUR BREASTPLATE PRAYER

I arise today
Through God's strength:
God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, God's host to save me

Christ to shield me today
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
