Talented vocalists with a strong sense of liturgy and interest in leading the congregation in song are welcome to become cantors. Cantors also proclaim the Psalm from the ambo during Mass. New cantors receive in-depth training before serving during a liturgy.
Chorale is open to any adult or high school vocalist who wishes to share his or her gift of music and benefit from the camaraderie of other musicians. The group rehearses from 7-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights from September through May. Chorale sings at the 9:30 a.m. Sunday Mass several times each month from September through May, as well as at special liturgies.
Musicians skilled in woodwind, brass, percussion and stringed instruments occasionally are invited to play at special liturgies.
Jubilation (Parish Children’s Choir)
Jubilation is open to students in grades four through eight. The group rehearses from 3-3:45 p.m. on Wednesdays during the school year. Jubilation normally sings at the second Sunday, 9:30 a.m. Mass monthly. They also sing at the Family Christmas Mass (5:30 p.m., Christmas Eve), First Eucharist Mass, and occasionally at special liturgies. In addition, this group sings each week at School Masses during the school year. New members are always welcome.
Resurrection Choir (Funerals)
Singers are welcome to join the Resurrection Choir, which sings for funerals upon request. There are no rehearsals, and it is not necessary to be a member of another parish choir to join this group.

St. Peter Singers welcomes singers, guitarists, pianists and other instrumentalists who would like to lead the music at the 11:00 a.m. Sunday Mass and other liturgies.
