The volunteer music ministry at St. Clare of Assisi is a vibrant and exciting place to serve God. There are a wide variety of options to join, as each Mass has its own musical style. Please contact Marianne Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining any of these groups. Because we integrate our young people into this ministry, volunteers are required to complete a background check and Virtus training. Minor volunteers must complete a Minor Volunteer Application.
Traditional Mass Choir (Saturday 4:30pm Mass, Sunday 8:15am Mass)
This group is a traditional choir with cantor, accompanied by keyboard (in the style of organ). The Mass parts used are the traditional Roman Missal ICEL chants sung in English with accompaniment. Hymns include primarily selections from the Gather comprehensive hymnals that were donated to our mission and are available for use at the early Mass on Sunday. This choir rehearses on Tuesday nights in the rectory chapel on Cedarcrest Road at 7pm. Concert instrumentalists, including flute, clarinet, and violin join this group regularly. Brass is added on special occasions.
Contemporary Mass Choirs (Sunday 10:30am Mass)
Except for 1st Sundays when the Angel Choir sings, this choir sings more contemporary hymns from Spirit and Song and CCLI, consisting of guitar, piano, light percussion, and both adult and teen vocalists each week. Led by Tony Waite, professional guitarist and songwriter, the contemporary choir rehearses Fridays in the rectory chapel or at St Catherine of Siena School Music Room at 6:30pm (please check Parish Calendar on our home page for location).
