At Saint James Catholic Church the music ministry is a vital part of the exaltation of God through Word and Sacrament. The music program consists of choirs and solo cantors that participate in the liturgies of the church. Through this ministry, sung Evening Prayer, Latin parts of the Mass and music, as well as traditional and contemporary music is sung throughout the liturgical year.
The Parish Choir sings for the 10:00 AM Mass on Sundays. The choir’s season runs from the week after Labor Day through June. The choir rehearses on Wednesday nights from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in the Loretto Center. Anyone who loves singing and is willing to commit to weekly evening rehearsals is most welcome to join!
The Resurrection Choir is made up of dedicated volunteers who sing for all funeral liturgies at Saint James Church. The choir meets a half hour before funeral Masses to briefly run through the chosen music for the liturgy. Anyone can participate in this special ministry that has provided comfort to many parishioners and guests.
The Cantor Program consists of a team of volunteer cantors who sing for weekend and Holy Day Masses as well as occasional weddings and funerals in the parish. An audition is required to join this team of musicians.
For more information on any of these groups please email Tim Watts, Director of Music Ministries.
