Music Ministry

This choir is made up of children in the 3rd through 8th grades.  Rehearsals are on Tuesdays at 3:30pm.  The choir sings twice a month at the 9:30am Mass.  They also sing on Christmas Eve, Easter Sunday, and other feast days and special occasions.

This choir is for anyone in high school through age 110!  They sing at 11:00 am Mass each weekend and rehearse immediately following until approximately 1:15 pm.  In addition, this choir is called to sing on Christmas Eve, Easter Vigil and other feast days and special occasions. No previous experience is necessary, but an enjoyment of singing and a willingness to learn is required!

The Funeral Choir leads the congregation at parish funerals, most of which are held on weekday mornings. There are no regularly scheduled rehearsals. If you enjoy singing and are available on weekday mornings with just a few days’ notice, this Choir is for you.

The Cantors of St. Matthew Parish range in ages from grade 5 to adult. Excellent vocal skills and confident leadership ability is required. Training is available on an individual basis and is ongoing. Cantors are scheduled to sing once or twice a month. Scheduling is flexible depending on each person’s availability.

This is a program for students of St. Matthew School in grades 3 to 8 to train them to cantor at the Friday School Masses. These cantors meet on Tuesdays from 3:00 to 3:30. Students in this program can continue to become cantors at weekend Masses if they choose.

Anyone who plays a wind, brass or string instrument is invited to participate in the instrumental section of our Music Ministry. Instrumentalists rehearse with the Adult Choir. These musicians must be proficient on their instrument. Strong sight reading ability is helpful as well as the ability to be musically flexible. Instrumentalists are given music in advance and participate as their schedule permits.
