Cantor, accompanist & small ensembles

The ministry of the cantor is central to our music ministry. The cantor encourages and supports the participation of everyone in the Mass and proclaims the psalms, the Word of God. The cantor is a leader of sung prayer who loves God and neighbor by offering their gifts in a way that points to God.  

The ministry of instrumentalists and other singers.
At STM, the accompanist (pianist/organist) and any additional instrumentalists or singers partner with the cantor in their ministry, guided by the same values and intentions. Whatever the size of the ensemble, they orient their efforts to cultivate beauty as an opening to God and offer their songs as an invitation to prayer. 

The ministry of the assembly.
As music ministers, we dedicate ourselves to our art because we know that God uses that to bless those who worship with us. This is why we encourage the whole assembly to do the same. 

The Celebration Choir

The ministry of the choir is to support the sung prayer of  God’s people and to add beauty, reverence and joy to our liturgies.
We serve at the 9am Sunday Mass most weekends, at the Saturday 4pm Mass every second full weekend of the month and various special Masses through the year. The first rehearsal for 2023 is Wednesday, August 23 7pm in the church choir loft. The choir season is through Pentecost.
