The Church of St. Luke affords many opportunities for parishioners to become more intimately involved in the liturgical life of the parish. We invite all parishioners––children and adults––to explore the many ways you can participate in our musical ministry:
For those who enjoy a choral experience of music, our traditional SATB Adult Choir offers an excellent opportunity to explore the Church’s repertoire of classical and contemporary sacred music. The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7 to 8:30pm in church, and ministers at the 10am Mass on Sundays. The SATB choir also lends their voices to more solemn occasions, such as the Sacred Triduum, All Souls Mass of Remembrance and Christmas Midnight Mass. Members, while not required to read music, must demonstrate an ability to sing on pitch and a willingness to attend rehearsals. If you are interested in joining the choir and need more information, please email our Director of Music Ministry – Tom Hinz at firstname.lastname@example.org
The cantor is the visible face of the music ministry, leading the assembly in sung prayer and worship. This is an awesome ministry that includes the proclamation of Scripture through the singing of the Psalms. The cantor facilitates the singing of the assembly through vocal and gesturing technique. Those who wish to serve in this special ministry must demonstrate a strong vocal ability and be able to sing strongly on pitch.
It is preferred that you have some experience reading music, and be willing to practice and be prepared for the music you will leading for the mass you are scheduled for. Above all a cantor must be a person of prayer who is faithfully active in the life of the Church.
Beginning in the Fall of 2016, we will be starting a Children’s Choir. Children in Grades 3 to 8 are welcome to join. Music experience is not necessary. If you have a child that might be interested and want additional information, please email our Director of Music Ministry and Children’s Choir Director – Tom Hinz at: email@example.com
