A Call to St. Therese Music Ministry

August 27, 2008 by admin

The end of summer is less than a month away, and summer vacations have another year’s worth of fond memories. It’s the time of year to look ahead to the shortening days and lengthening evenings and time to re-evaluate how we spend the weeks of fall and winter. What better way to spend your time preparing for the upcoming holiday seasons than by singing praise to God? This year, I’m encouraging the members of St. Therese Parish (and those of you who are casually searching the Internet) to consider joining our music ministry team. We have a host of ways for you to participate:

Canticle Choir provides sung prayer leadership at funerals. It rehearses the second Tuesday each month from September through May.

Cantor Ministry provides sung leadership at the 5:00 pm and 8:00 am weekend liturgies. The schedule is flexible and rehearsals are planned at your convenience.

Cherub Choir – for children ages 3-8 years old — sings for the Intergenerational Christmas Liturgy and at the 10:00 am Liturgy on Mother’s Day.

Instrumentalist: No matter what instrument you play well, St. Therese Music Ministry will find liturgies for you to accompany. High School students are encouraged to join this ministry. The 10:00 Mass Praise Band would love to have a drummer join them – see the blog posted on July 29th.

Kids In the Middle Kantor Khoir: This newly forming group for students ages 9-13 years old will cantor for the 10:00 am Mass on the third Sunday of the month.

Sound Board Minister: Maintain consistently good sound for liturgies. Training is provided at your convenience. 5:00 pm weekend Masses are especially in need of Sound Board Ministers. See the blog posted June 3rd.

St. Therese Sunday Choir provides sung prayer leadership at the 10:00 am weekend liturgies. Rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm.

Participating in any parish ministry rewards you in ways you could not have imagined. Ask our current participants: they’ll gladly tell you why they keep coming back year after year.
