The Children’s Choir is open to grades 3 through 8. Singers rehearse on Monday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:00 pm and sing at the 10 am Sunday Mass one to two times each month.
Cantor / Psalmist
In the absence of a choir, cantors lead the singing of hymns, Mass parts, Responsorial Psalm, and Gospel Acclamation. Cantors need to have a pleasant singing voice and some knowledge of music reading. Cantors practice on their own time and meet with the accompanists 30 minutes before Mass. Cantors are needed at the Saturday 5 pm, Sunday 8 am, and Sunday 10 am.
A Psalmist leads the singing of the Responsorial Psalm and Gospel Acclamation while the choir leads everything else. In the absence of a choir, the psalmist and cantor positions are filled by the same person. Psalmist are needed at the Sunday 10 am Mass and occasional 8 am Masses.
