Musicians play an essential role in our liturgical celebrations. They help envoke the solemnity of the Mass, and bring the congregation together in word and song. In Colossians 3:16, St. Paul says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.., singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.”
St. John’s has an adult choir for the 10:30am Sunday Mass. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings during the choral season. Anyone aged 14 and up who are interested are welcome to come to rehearsal or contact our director for more information! People willing to cantor are also encouraged to inquire.
A children’s choir sings for special liturgies, and St. John’s School also has a youth choir.
We are in need of additional instrumentalists including pianists, guitarists, violinists, flutists, etc.
Please consider sharing your talents with our parish community. Contact the parish office.
The name now given to those who assist the presider at the Liturgy really does indicate their job description. They are called to “service”, a basic attribute of all Christians. It is not a ministry to draw attention to oneself, but to facilitate the community celebration of our great prayer of thanksgiving, the Eucharist.
Share the Body and Blood of Christ as a minister of the bread or cup at weekend and special liturgies. Initial training is provided. Please contact the parish office.
Proclaim the Word of God at weekend and special liturgies. Initial training is provided. Public speaking and a desire to learn more about Sacred Scripture is helpful. The impact of the proclamation of God’s word depends significantly on the preparation, the delivery, and the conviction of the reader.
Contact the parish office for more information.
