Serve as Cantor - The Cantor ministry at St. Peter is specialized and select which weekend masses they are available for over the course of the month. Cantors receive vocal training and are expected to come to Mass fully prepared musically, maintaining an attitude of Christian service. They must have a vocal range capable of that found in most Catholic hymnals (Mezzo-Soprano for female, Baritone for male), a clear, pleasant singing voice, and an ability to read music. This is an auditioned ministry.
Serve as Chorister - The Parish Choir (maximum of 8 singers (until further notice), masks required) typically sings three Sundays per month at the 10:30am Mass between Labor Day and Memorial Day weekends. This spring, the choir will sing for the Holy Triduum at the Maundy Thursday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday (10:30 AM) Masses. Mandatory rehearsals for the Parish Choir will take place on a weeknight (to be determined) from 7:00 - 8:45pm, and Sundays at 9:15am. The goal of the Parish Choir is to augment the sung worship and prayer of those in attendance at Mass through hymnody, chant, and anthems. The atmosphere of this ensemble is intensive, educational, and prayerful. All are welcome to join! Stay tuned for information with regards to the Autumn 2021-Spring 2022 choir season!
