Music Ministries

“Sing to the LORD, bless his name; proclaim his salvation day after day!” 

The Catholic Church has always affirmed the importance of Sacred Music and we welcome all to our
vibrant ministry. If you are interested serving with your musical gifts or volunteering to assist with music technology, the music library, or other support behind the scenes, please contact Jeanne Marie Gerig, Interim Director of Music.

 

St. Thomas Parish Choir

Please note that due to Covid-19, this music ministry has been suspended and will return as soon as it is safe for all. 

 

Cantor Ministry

A cantor assists us at every weekend and Holy Day Mass by leading the hymns, psalms, and Mass parts. Cantors do not need to be professional musicians, but should possess a desire to serve the parish, a clear voice with good diction, basic music reading skills and knowledge of the flow of the liturgy. Cantors must audition, and they are scheduled in advance. Participation in the choir is not required to serve as cantor, though preparation is required.

 

Extraordinary Form Mass
Cantor and Schola musicians for this Mass are by audition only.

 

Instrumentalists/ Accompanists/Volunteers

We welcome skilled instrumentalists to assist our music ministry! If you play a band or orchestra instrument at a high school level, there are opportunities to play prelude music, enhance the hymns at Mass, or form small ensembles. Pianists and organists will be considered as substitutes for Mass and accompanists for parish groups. Guitarists are invited to consider serving at our Sunday 6pm Mass or additional prayer services.

Sunday Evening Ministries
Our current schedule on Sunday evening includes Mass at 6 pm, a Holy Hour at 7 pm, and a Student Mass at 8:30 pm. Our small ensembles for these ministries include piano, guitar, and cantors. The music is primarily contemporary.

 

Children’s Choir
 Please note that due to Covid-19, this music ministry has been suspended and will return as soon as it is safe for all.
