Hello and welcome to Blessed Sacrament's music ministry page! Here you will find information about our upcoming music performances, choir schedules, and articles for further education in your knowledge of Catholic music.
Adult & Handbell Choir
The adult music ministry is open to anyone high school age or older. Both the adult choir and handbell choir rehearse on Wednesday evenings in the church choir loft. The adult choir sings for the 11:00 AM Mass on Sundays and the handbell choir plays for special feast days and other celebrations. All parishioners are welcome and invited to join regardless of musical ability.
Our special Masses throughout the year include Christmas Eve, Easter Sunday, Epiphany, Pentecost, the Corpus Christi Outdoor Mass and many more! Come on up and join us!
The youth choir is open to all students in grades 3-8. Students are required to audition for the ensemble in order to place them in the appropriate vocal section (soprano or alto). All auditions are accepted. The youth choir rehearses for 50 minutes after school on Wednesdays and sings multiple times a month - at 9:00 am on Sunday or 8:00 am on Friday as the schedule dictates.
Attending youth choir rehearsal is comparable to taking private voice lessons and students are trained in healthy vocal technique that stays with them as their bodies continue to grow and mature. The middle school members of the choir are given individual cantor instruction and have the opportunity to cantor as soloists during our scheduled Masses. All students in grades 5-8 are also trained to play the handbells for special occasions. Send your student up to the loft for this wonderful opportunity to participate in the musical stewardship at Blessed Sacrament!
