Open to those ages 6 to high school. We meet Wednesday evening from 6:15-6:55 p.m. in the loft of the church during the school year. All are welcomed. All that is required is wanting to sing, or play an instrument! We have saxophone, flute, keyboards and percussion players. There is plenty of room for more! This group sings at the Noon Mass the last Sunday of each month, the 7 p.m. Christmas Eve Mass and the 12 p.m. Easter Morning Mass. They also sing the first Wednesday Night Mass of each month during the school year.
There are three Music Ensemble choices for each of the Sunday Masses. The Music Ensemble Members from all groups can float between groups. If you can not make the same Mass each week, just join the ensemble for the Mass that fits your schedule. All groups preform the same music for each Mass on any given weekend. Please just walk up the steps and introduce yourself to Music Director Steve Mason for any of the following ensembles.
