“Lord, send out your Spirit and renew the face of the earth!” (Psalm 104)
An enthusiastic and dedicated group of young people, both vocalists and instrumentalists, leads the assembly in spirit-filled and contemporary sung prayer at the Sunday 5:30 pm Mass each week. The focus of this Mass is young people, although it is well-attended by parishioners of all ages. Song selections are drawn from some traditional sources, but the emphasis is on more contemporary songs by young composers with a more direct style of both lyrics and melody.
Since the repertoire of contemporary Christian songs is a very dynamic field, singers and instrumentalists who keep up with the latest songs are welcome to contribute your ideas and voices to this ensemble. One of our goals is to establish a body of songs for the 5:30 Mass assembly that speaks to all present, and that remains fresh even as it becomes more familiar.
Rehearsals are held in the church before the Mass, starting around 3:30 or 4:00 pm. As with other Cantor Ensembles, there is strength in numbers, as the whole group supports the assembly in the songs and responses of the liturgy. We are all called to serve; this is your personal invitation to become involved in this musical team!
