Parish Choir

The Parish Choir has begun a new fall season.  The choir is open to all who love to sing.  It is open to high-school age students and adults.  The choir enhances liturgy with a wide variety of music, from chant and polyphony to contemporary music.  The choir will sing at the 8:30 am Mass every 1st and 2nd Sunday of the month and at the 10:30 am Mass every 3rd and 4th Sunday.  Rehearsals are Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm in the Church.  The choir usually accepts new members throughout the year, but we encourage new members to begin in September.  Contact Music Director, Michael Galdo, [email protected] to join.


Witness provides music for the Sunday 5:00 pm Teen Mass. Witness primarily plays modern contemporary style music to encourage the “full, active, conscious participation” of the youth. Rehearsals are held at 4pm on Sundays prior to Mass. Adults and youth, 8th grade and up, who sing or play an instrument, are welcome to join. Please contact Kevin Bills, [email protected].
