Music at St Monica

Welcome to Music at Saint Monica Parish

At Saint Monica Parish, we welcome any parishoners who are interested in sharing their time and talents with our gathered assembly. Whether you are able to participate weekly or monthly, the music ministry in our parish will greatly benefit from your participation. There are so many ways to be involved in music at Mass. Some of them require extra preparation time each week. These include singing in one of our choirs, serving as a cantor, singing for a special event, providing musical accompaniment, or playing an instrument.

If you would like to join any of the groups, please DON’T BE SHY. Fill our THIS FORM and we will get in touch with you right away.

Music is for all and by all at Saint Monica; whether you raise your voice and heart from the pew or join one of our ensembles, your participation in the music of our parish is a blessing. Thank you for your enthusiasm each week!  Contact Music Directors Trae & Kelsey Blanco for more information:

Being a cantor is one of the more visible roles in the music ministry. It requires both a strong, good voice and the ability to read music. The cantor’s role is to lead the worshiping assembly during the liturgy and to proclaim the Word in music, especially through the Psalms.

Adult Choir

St. Monica’s choir is a blend of enthusiastic and industrious voices with one common commitment to assist the worshiping assembly in song. We warmly welcome all parishioners who are able to lend their voices to our choir. No audition is needed.

  • Practice: weekly, Wednesdays, 7:00-8:30pm, beginning October 5, 2022. 

  • Mass: Sunday mass, 10:30am and special Feast Days

The Sonrise Group

The Sonrise group is a small contemporary group that ministers to the 10:30am mass once each month.
