All of those affected are in our thoughts and prayers.
Our music ministry at St. Peter Chanel is blessed to have many talented staff and volunteer musicians who bring their expertise and spirituality to our ministry. Good music is a vital part of good liturgy, and we seek to serve the parish well in bringing a high standard of liturgical music to all our Masses and special liturgies throughout the year. All of our musicians embrace the commitment and responsibility it takes to be involved in a ministry that is “on call” year round, but that carries countless rewards and benefits, not just to the parish at large, but to its individual members. We have opportunities for those with little or no formal training, as well as for professional musicians, to be involved in some aspect of the music at any of our weekend liturgies. You can be a member of a small ensemble or a larger SATB choir, and many of our choirs require no formal auditions to join. If you are a professional or trained instrumentalist and wish to help in a more specialized fashion at our liturgies, there is an audition process in which you meet with the music director and are evaluated for sight-reading skills, as well as technique and ability on your instrument. There are also vocal and instrumental audition opportunities for membership in our Teen Band at Sunday evening liturgies. We welcome you to prayerfully consider joining us and serving the Lord with the musical talents He has given you to use for His glory.
