Choir

Singing in the choir is an excellent way to serve the Cathedral and share the gift of music with the parish. The choir is open to anyone of high school age and older, and the only requirements are a pleasant voice, the ability to carry a tune, and the desire to grow musically and spiritually through the ministry of music.  Cathedral choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7 – 9 p.m., and sings at the Sunday morning 11:30 a.m. liturgy from September through the Feast of the Body and Blood of Our Lord (usually early June). In addition, the choir performs both a Christmas Concert in December and a Patriotic Concert just prior to the Fourth of July. The ability to read music is not a requirement for choir membership.

Lectors

God is not only present in the Holy Eucharist, but also present in His Word. The sacred ministry of Lector is a key role in the Mass, since the Lector is proclaiming the Word of God to the congregation. A Lector should be respected within the community, of good reputation, and one who can effectively proclaim the Word of God to the congregation. Training is required and provided.

Mass Servers

This ministry promotes “serving” during the Mass. A young person wishing to serve at the altar must be in the fifth grade or older. There is no upper age limit for servers;  some of our servers are mature adults who serve for weekday Masses, weekends, funerals and other special occasions.

Ushers

Ushers welcome, direct and help those attending Sunday Masses and special liturgies. They also collect the offering of stewardship of treasure, assure order during the congregation’s’ reception of the Holy Eucharist, and provide assistance whenever required during Masses.
