The Contemporary Choir

The Contemporary Choir leads song and sung prayers during the 11 a.m. Mass. This choir is a piano and guitar based ensemble with a repertoire consisting primarily of songs by leading composers of “folk” style liturgical music, augmented by songs from the African-American sacred music tradition and traditional hymns. The choir rehearses Wednesday evening for 60-90 minutes. All the choirs work together for the Easter Triduum and Christmas celebrations. If you have a gift for singing and/or playing an instrument that you can share with us, please join us.
