Formation & Ministries
Ministry at our parish liturgies is a great way to go deeper in your faith.
St. Clare Choir leads the worshipping assembly in its sacred song and presents selections of sacred choral music to enhance the liturgy. It mainly ministers at the 9:30 AM Sunday liturgy and at all major parish celebrations from September through May. The choir meets weekly on Tuesday evenings at 7 PM to rehearse and also has a short 30 minute rehearsal on Sunday morning just before Mass. This ministry is open to parishioners of high school age and above.
The Youth Choir is comprised of students from grades 4-11. It ministers monthly at the 9:30 AM Sunday Mass from October through May and rehearses before Mass.
Cantors, or song leaders, come from within the choir organization and have a leadership role within the ministry. The cantor's main responsibility is to lead the communities sung prayer at worship. Cantor rehearsals are held as needed and recordings provided when needed.
Parishioners who have performance knowledge of a particular musical instruments are encouraged to participate in the worship life of the parish by offering their gift to enhance the assemblies song and to join in ensemble groups for special celebrations. Music is provided weekly with instructions and individuals are invited to play when their schedules allow.
Sing to the Lord a new song.
Sing His praise from the end of the earth!
