Music Ministry


Greetings!  Welcome to the Music Ministry Page!

Music Ministry Opportunities at St. Agnes

St. Agnes Choir – The choir’s mission is to lead and support sung prayer during the Liturgy. The choir rehearses during the seasons of Lent, Christmas, Advent and Easter, and sings at 10:30 Masses during those seasons and selected Sundays throughout the year.

Song Leaders – Song leaders or cantors have a vital role in the liturgy to lead the congregation in sung responses, acclamations, hymns, and songs. Song leaders must be able to devote time each week to prepare to sing a Psalm, hymns, and acclamations. Individuals considering song leading should have some vocal experience as a soloist or choir member. Training and practice materials are provided. Song leaders are needed for Sunday Masses, Vespers, Taize Prayer, and other special services.

Instrumentalists – Throughout the year, various instrumentalists are needed and appreciated to accompany various parts of the sung Liturgy. If you play an instrument, please contact Elaine with your contact information, instrument(s) you play, and how long you have been playing them (i.e. 3 years of lessons, or professional musician).  You will be contacted as needs arise.

Support – We are always in need of volunteers to support the music program. Those who are interested in helping to change hymn numbers, place and run sound equipment, or with music sorting, copying, and clerical duties are welcome.
