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 10:30 Choir leads the 10:30 mass.

Our family choir had its start in the school cafeteria when the church was being built.It 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 our invited to sign with this choir. Musicians are welcome also!

Contact Linda Cavanaugh  at 900Familychoir@stelizabethschurch.org  for information about this choir.

The 10:30 choir is a group of singers and musicians who also got their start in the Mt. View School cafeteria where St. Elizabeth’s celebrated mass in the early days. This group is made up of very talented musicians and vocalists. They practice every Thursday night at 7:30 in the Church.

Please contact Phil Lamoureux at 1030choir@stelizabethschurch.org if you are interested in joining this choir.
