Along with the celebrant, ministers of the Word, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, and cantor, the Choir has a special ministry as well, that of supporting the congregational singing as well as offering special music which enhances the liturgy celebration, such as a choral prelude, or a communion reflection drawn from the vast collection of sacred choral music. Our dedicated group of volunteers which forms the St. Thomas Motet Choir is made up of parishioners who have made a special time commitment to rehearse weekly and participate at the weekend liturgies. It’s a diverse group of parishioners, students from CTU and U of C and members of various religious communities residing in Hyde Park.
The STA Motet Choir sings at the 4 p.m. and 8:30 a.m. Masses and rehearses on Saturdays at 3:00pm, prior to the 4:00pm MASS and on Sundays at 7:45am, prior to the 8:30am MASS.
