Music ministries are integral to our worship and also provide the opportunity for parishioners to use their musical talents in service to our community. We welcome new participants in our music programs throughout the year; if you are interested, please contact us!
Sunday 9 am Music Group
This group consists of vocalists and instrumentalists who lead music at the 9 am Sunday Mass. We rehearse Sunday mornings prior to Mass, and welcome participants of all ages. For more information, contact Paula Schmitz at (253) 286-0028.
Sunday 5 pm Music Group
This group consists of vocalists and instrumentalists, mostly teens and young adults, who lead music at the 5 pm Sunday Mass. We rehearse Sunday evenings prior to Mass. For more information, contact Paula Schmitz at (253) 286-0028.
Members of the Adult Choir lead music at the Saturday 7 pm and Sunday 11 am weekend liturgies, joining together for rehearsals on Thursday evenings, and special holy day liturgies. We enjoy singing all styles of choral music, and welcome members of any age, although vocal scoring is best suited for adult voices. For more information, contact Paula Schmitz at (253) 286-0028.
Children's Choir and Youth Choir opportunities
The Children's Choir is open to students in grades 1-6, and sings at selected holy day liturgies. The Youth Choir is for students in grades 7 through 12 who would like a choral singing experience, learning to sing parts and choral techniques while having a lot of fun and fellowship! Please call Paula Schmitz at (253) 286-0028 to be added to our contact lists. If we have enough students interested we will re-convene these groups.
Other Music Opportunities
Cantors lead music on occasions as needed. Cantors may also participate with our other music groups. We also welcome instrumentalists and accompanists to assist at our liturgies both for special occasions and on a regular basis. Please share your gift for music with us, and contact Paula Schmitz at (253) 286-0028 to find out how you can become involved in our music programs.
This is the group for those "enthusiastic singers" among the assembly each week. Join us for a fun experience helping lead music at special holidays; our group sings for one Christmas Day Mass. With just a few rehearsals, the Celebration Choir is perfect for those who want to sing but do not want a lengthy commitment. Please contact Paula Schmitz at (253) 286-0028 for information.
To all considering Music Ministry
There are many gifts, but the same Spirit... Those of us leading music programs are committed to helping you discern the "right place" to participate in music ministry. Some may have the gift of a voice that inspires others in the assembly to sing with enthusiasm... others may have a voice that is not impressive, but when joined en force with others, can be a "joyful noise" for the Lord. Beginning singers and instrumentalists may need time to build skills to join our groups on a regular basis, but we will work with you along the way. Please give us a call, or stop to talk with one of the music leaders after Mass.
