Music Ministry

Music ministry at St. Mary by the Lake serves as an opportunity for musicians of the parish to answer their baptismal call to ministry and live out their faith as disciples of Christ by leading worship for the God who is worthy of our praise! We strive to project God’s love through music, and seek to inspire through our work.

Choir (Practice Sunday Mornings 9:30 AM) **We begin singing and rehearsing on Sunday, September 16th, 2018**

The St. Mary by the Lake Choir is a great opportunity to connect with other music-lovers in the parish while growing your faith in worship! The choir sings a wide variety of styles and genres in four-part harmony, and is open to anyone high school age and older.   Rehearsals take place, September through May. The choir sings at the morning Mass each Sunday and at special Liturgies throughout the church year. The ability to read music is not required, and there is no audition!


 Cantors serve as solo leaders of congregational song, especially when no choir is present.  They are responsible for inviting the congregation to song and leading the singing. 


For musicians able to enhance our worship experience with their musical gifts, whether on a regular basis or at special feast day celebrations. Musicians of all kinds are encouraged to accompany at Mass. Rehearsals vary. Various styles of music welcome!
