Music Ministry:

Hymn Listing

Parish Choir:

The Parish Choir is the principal vocal ensemble at St. Mary’s. Enjoyment is the key to success in the choir. Members participate because they enjoy being part of a larger group, making new friends, and growing in their spiritual life.

This seasonal group enhances the liturgy through music. The choir sings at the 9 am Mass, Solemnities, and other special occasions. Rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7 pm, in the loft, beginning the Wednesday after Labor Day, and last about a hour and a half hour. The choir resumes its post on Rosary Sunday and continues until Pentecost.

Some music experience, either vocal or instrumental, is helpful.

Funeral Choir

This group is comprised of parishioners who are always available on a moment’s notice to provide music for funerals here at St. Mary’s. New members are always welcome.

Please contact our music director, npowell@delawarestmary.org, if you are interested in joining the St. Mary funeral choir.

Instrumentalists

We are always looking to add instrumentalists either regularly or in showcase of parishioner talent at appropriate times throughout the year. Instruments could include: brass, wind, organ, keyboard, strings, etc.

Please contact the music director, npowell@delawarestmary.org, to participate in the music program.

Cantors

Cantor Sign-up

A grand way to get involved with the music ministry here at St. Mary’s is to volunteer as a cantor. Cantors will sing: hymns, antiphons, the parts of the mass, psalms, gospel acclamations, etcetera.  Some musical experience, vocal or instrumental, is expected.
