11:00 am Mass Joyful Noise

drummer and keyboard player

Would you like to share your musical talents at the Sunday, 11:00 AM Mass Joyful Noise.  Do you play keyboard, guitar, flute, clarinet, violin, etc?  Have you played for at least two or more years?  Maybe you are in the High School Band or have played in a group years ago, I am looking to enhance the sound of the music that we already love and sing each week.  If God blessed you with a talent in music, please consider sharing it at the 11:00 Mass on Sunday.  If you know someone that plays an instrument, please plant a seed in their heart to help us at the 11:00 Sunday Contemporary Mass.

Note: rehearsals are on summer break and resume August 17th.

Cantors

Resurrection Choir

The Resurrection Choir has openings for new members! What a beautiful ministry it is to sing for loved one’s funerals. It is very comforting to the grieving families to have a choir sing and respond at the funeral Mass. Many Parishioners love to sing but cannot drive at night or have other Thursday evening obligations that prevent them from singing in the Joyful Choir. We invite you to consider being a part of the Resurrection Choir. Members are contacted before the funeral and sing when they are available. Snowbirds are always welcome to join too.
 

If you are interested in joining the Joyful or Joyful Noise Choirs, Resurrection Choir or the Cantor Team, please call the Chantal Ward, Director of Music Ministry, at 393-1288 x202 or the Parish Office at 393-1288 during the week to leave a message.
