Come and make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
The Music Ministry is made of various groups of singers and instrumentalists. Music is a very important part of Catholic Church worship. The choir leads the congregation to prayer in song. At St. Elizabeth’s we are blessed with 2 choirs; the Family Choir leads the 9am mass and the Seton Choir leads the 10:30 mass.
Both choirs had their start in the school cafeteria when the church was being built. The Family Choir began with just a few families and quickly grew as more children wanted to sing with the group. As always, anyone is welcome to join this choir. There are no practices, the only requirement is to come to 9am mass and sing to the Lord with all your heart. Confirmation candidates earn church service hours for participating. All are invited to sing with this choir. Musicians are welcome also!
Contact Linda Cavanaugh at 900Familychoir@stelizabethschurch.org for information about this choir.
The Seton Choir is a contemporary ensemble that leads the music every Sunday at the 10:30 AM Mass and on holy days throughout the year. The members consist of 1st year Confirmation candidates, high school teens and adults. The singers (SATB) and musicians include piano, guitar, clarinet, flute, percussion and other instruments.
Cantors/Song Leaders lead the music during the 5PM Saturday Mass.
Please contact Phil Lamoureux at email@example.com if you are interested in joining the Seton Choir.
We also have a Teen Choir providing the music for the monthly 5PM Saturday Youth Mass. This is coordinated through our Youth Minister, Shannon Jones, Youth@stelizabethschurch.org
