Music Program

The mission of Good Shepherd’s Music Ministry is to facilitate and encourage the gathered assembly in full, active and conscious participation in the celebration of the Eucharist. Sacred prayer sung by the faithful truly enriches our experience in the call to serve one another.  St. Augustine once remarked, “To sing, is to pray twice.”

 

Adult Choir

Serves: Weekend liturgies and holy days of obligation throughout the church year.

Members:  A multi-generational ensemble of singers and musicians in the age range of 7th graders to seasoned citizens.  You don’t have to be able to read music or sing like an “angel,” just bring your “bucket” and we will help you fill it with beautiful music.

Rehearsals: Monday 7:00-8:30pm in the church, mid-August through the end of May.

 

Cantor/Psalmist

Mission:  Assist the gathered assembly in singing the prayers of the liturgy to include:

the Dialogues (The Lord be with you…..And with your spirit), the Propers of the mass (Kyrie, Gloria, Holy, Holy & Lamb of God), Responsorial Psalm (sung from the ambo), and the Gospel Acclamation.

Serves:  Weekend masses and on special occasions (Holy days, First communion and Confirmation).

Requirements: Cantors and Psalmists must possess a sense of reverence, a good clear voice, confidence, poise and an ability to lead the assembly in sung prayer.  The position requires the successful completion of an audition with the director of music.

 

Children’s Choir

Serves:  Sunday  8:30 a.m. mass once per month, plus Christmas, Easter & Mother’s Day.

Members: Kindergarten – 6th grade children.  Everyone is welcome regardless of ability.
