Music Ministries

Music in sacred liturgy is an essential element of worship. A love and appreciation for sacred music, along with some talent and commitment, is all that is required.

 

Adult Choir

Practices are held on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 PM in the church, from September until May. There are openings for all – no auditions necessary. The Adult Choir provides the music for various Masses through the months of September through May. For further information, please contact Bryan Hoffstetter at 610-282-1735.

 

Funeral Choir

Singers provide music during Funeral Masses at the church. Most Masses are held mornings during the week. For further information, please contact Bryan Hoffstetter at 610-282-1735.

 

Junior Choir & Children’s Choir

The Junior Choir is open to all children, grades 3–12. Practices are held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month from September to May after the 11:00 Mass in the church. The choir sings at the 9:30 AM Mass on the 1st Sunday of the month from October to May. They also provide music at the 5:15 PM Christmas Eve Mass, Easter Sunday 9:30 AM Mass, Confirmation, First Penance/Reconciliation, and First Communion Masses. Please contact Jim D’Annibale at 610-533-8503.

 

Instrumentalists

We are always in need of talented people who play musical instruments; such as, trumpet, flute, saxophone, violin, guitar, etc., to join with our choirs, especially for special Masses throughout the church year. We would also welcome keyboardists (organ/piano) to assist with Mass or with the choirs. If you play an instrument and would like to share your talent with our parish family in praise of God, please contact Fr. Buckley at 610-965-2877.

 

Handbell Choirs

Children and adults are needed for our handbell choirs. If you can count and hold a bell, you will be able to ring! Practices will be held weekly at the church during the school year with handbells playing at select Masses. For more information, call Linda Hoffstetter at 610-282-1735.
