Our parish music ministry works to bring vitality to our sung worship through a wide variety of beauty in our liturgical music. One great aspect of the Cathedral music ministry is the community that is built among the various musicians and singers, bringing about a depth of faith and spirituality and commitment to prayer and good works.
The Liturgical Music Office is located on the lower level of the Cathedral behind Marian Hall.
Here is a listing of various music ministries at the Cathedral. If you are interested in serving in the Cathedral music ministry in any way, call the Office at 725-2703.
Directed by Nancy Deacon, the choir serves the Cathedral from September through May, or as far as the feast of Pentecost, whichever comes last. Choir members rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm and usually serve at the 10 AM Sunday Mass.
Cantors serve to lead the assembly in sung worship. All Cantors must have Cantor Training--Level I offered through the diocesan Institute for Liturgy and Spirituality.
The Cathdral High School (9-12) Schola Canturm provides musical leadership at Tuesday morning liturgies throughout the academic year, and presents annual Lessons and Carols on the 4th Sunday of Advent, and a concert each spring in May. This ensemble is directed by Mr. Marc Cerisier.
The Cathedral has two handbell choirs which perform at various times throughout the year. The ICCS Elementary School Handbell Choir (grades 3-5) and the ICCS High School Handbell Choir (grades 6-12).
For various occasions, such as particularly solemn feasts, the Cathedral invites additional musicians to play, such as brass or string quartets, as well as individual instrumentalists. You never know when you might hear the enhancing music of an oboe, trumpet, or violin at a Cathedral liturgy.
