Music Ministry

There is a saying that singing is like praying twice.  The goal of our music at Mass is to help draw us into a deeper communion with God.  At St. Michael’s we are pleased to have cantors and four vocal choirs, as well as a Bell Choir.  If you have a gift for singing we invite you to join us as we sing to the Lord!
Cantor Ministry
CantorsIn our parish, the cantors are the soloists who lead us in song (accompanied by our Music Director, Tim Schramm, on the organ or piano).  Rehearsals are arranged on an individual basis, and vocal coaching is available if desired. Cantors can be scheduled on a very flexible basis.  This is a year round ministry.
