Music Ministry

Music ministry supports and leads community worship by engaging hearts, minds and bodies in active participation.

Vocalists and instrumentalists of every type of band and orchestral instrument are needed for Sunday Masses, special liturgies and ecumenical services.

The Liturgical Choir combines the joy of liturgical music with a commitment to high performance standards of the Music Department and are offered for academic course credit.

Opportunities to Serve


Cantors offer musical support as a gift of service to the community. They are proficient singers who combine weekly rehearsal with continuing musical, liturgical and spiritual growth. They meet during the week to prepare the liturgy, psalms, sacred hymns and songs.


Instrumentalists support the singing of the assembly and enhance our worship with their musical artistry. They play at various times throughout the year. We are always looking for gifted musicians to play at various Masses and liturgical functions at our chapels.

Liturgical Choir

Liturgical Choir is a 65-voice SATB choral ensemble co-sponsored by the Music Department. The choir sings for Mass, special liturgical celebrations and concerts. Membership is by audition and open to undergraduate and graduate students and faculty and staff of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.

Music Interns

“Teach me the songs of your truth, oh Lord, that I may bear fruit in you. And open to me the music of your Holy Spirit that with every note I may praise You. Out of Your abundant kindness grant me this, for You are sufficient for all our needs. Alleluia!”
