Music and Cantors

Instrumental, Organ, Piano, or Song Leader


In addition to the choirs, music ministry includes instrumentalists, organists, pianists, and song leaders.  The goal of the music Ministry is to serve all Parish members by leading them in worship through music.  This area of music ministry is not only available for weekend Masses, but also helps in para-liturgies, weddings, funerals, and other ceremonies.

Parishioners who are interested in these segments of music ministry should be qualified musicians in their respective instrument(s).  Song leaders should be good leaders of song and have knowledge of music fundamentals as well as a talent for singing.

Commitment to this area of music ministry requires a dedicated and responsible spirit.  Schedules usually conform to each person’s availability.

If interested in music ministry, please contact Jane Olson at (815)625-0640 x220.
