Music Ministry
 

Our Choirs & Ensembles

The principal choir at Holy Family is the worshiping assembly that gathers to celebrate the Mass. This great choir, often hundeds strong, thunders its Alleluias and Amens, sings the Lord's Prayer with fullness and beauty, and joins the Heavenly Host in the hymns, acclamations and responses with strength and grace.

Helping to lead the music at our Masses are our various music ministry choirs and ensembles:

ENSEMBLES

Our ensembles range from 1-2 guitars and a few voices to 4-6 instruments and a dozen or more voices. Ensembles lead music at the 4 PM Saturday and 10:30 AM Sunday Masses every weekend at Holy Family. The large ensemble practices every Tuesday night in the church (times vary through the year; often 7-8 PM or 6-7 PM) and one hour before Mass every Saturday and Sunday. We always welcome anyone, high school aged or above, who would like to join us in proclaiming God's Word through song, or by contributing their talent on an instrument.


CANTORS

Members within each choir and ensemble also serve in the function of Cantor at our Masses.
