Saint John's Adult Choir
The Adult Choir provides the music for the 9:00 Mass at St. John’s. They typically meet every Wednesday at St. John’s for practice at 7 p.m. (They usually practice every other week during the summer.) They meet again at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings to prepare themselves for the Mass. If you would like to be a part of the choir or have questions, contact the rectory and speak with John Griffin.
The Contemporary Group leads music at two Saturday Masses per month, usually singing songs with a more modern style. Instruments include guitar, drums, and keyboard. Any musicians high school age or older are welcome to participate. Rehearsals are usually Tuesdays at 7pm prior to the weekend Mass.
The Children's Choir is designed for children in grades 2 and over, this group leads music once a month at 11am Mass, generally for the last Sunday of the month. A wide selection of music is sung by these spirit-filled youngsters. VIRTUS-trained adults who would like to participate are welcome too. Rehearsals are usually on Saturdays at 10am the day before their Sunday liturgies.
The Vogies, Chris, Marianne, and Dave (as pictured left to right above) play at the 11:00 Mass at St. Bernard's. Chris is the son of Dave and Marianne. The Vogies play traditional songs in a folk style. Chris plays the bass, Dave the guitar, and Marianne plays both the dulcimer and the autoharp. Dave does most of the singing, but Chris and Marianne provide additional vocal support.
Hearts in Harmony
Three ladies joining their hearts and voices together to help sing praise to the Lord. They lead music once or twice a month.
Cantors lead music for Masses, weddings, and funerals as needed based on availability. Practice is at the mutual convenience of the singer and accompanist.
If you play an instrument, we would always be happy to have you play, especially at special liturgies like Christmas and Easter.
For any additional information, please contact the rectory and speak with John Griffin.
