Music Ministry

 organ pipes9:30 Choir

The primary function of this choir is to lead the music for the 9:30 a.m. Mass on Sundays and for other occasions as necessary or as scheduled. In addition to hymns and service music, the choir occasionally sings anthems to enhance the liturgy. Membership is open to musicians (vocalists and instrumentalists) of all ages starting at the Junior High School level. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00 PM, in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR), from September thru the feast of Pentecost. During the off season, the members are invited to assist the cantor at the 9:30 Mass as they are able. If you wish to join the choir, or would like additional information, please contact our parish director of music, John Edelmann at 937-554-1815 or via email at edelmann@hcst.net.

 

Cantors

The Cantors are accomplished vocalists who are willing and able to lead the assembly in the singing of Psalms, and acclamations used at Mass. In the absence of a choir or other ensemble, they lead congregational singing of hymns and service music.

Contemporary Music Ensemble

This group provides music for the Noon Mass on Sundays. The liturgy at this Sunday Eucharist is predominantly contemporary in nature. Led by Nick Cardilino, this group consists of a diverse mix of musicians: voice, guitar, keyboard, flute, percussion, and other instruments. For information on joining the ensemble, please contact Nick at 937-229-2524 (daytime) or via email.

Saturday Evening Ensemble

This group provides music for every other Saturday 5:00 PM Mass (generally). This small ensemble consists of classical guitar, keyboard, flute, and voice.

Bereavement Choir

As needed, members of all music ministry groups sing at funeral and memorial Masses. Music is planned by a member of the bereavement committee.
