Ronald E. McKean, Director of Music Ministries
CHOIRS and ENSEMBLES – 2022 demonstrates increased participation since the COVID outbreak in 2020. Numbers continue to improve as fears lessen and confidence heightens. We encourage participation through steady communication and the implementation of safe policy and procedures.
Nine groups/ensembles perform every week. Rehearsals are conducted weekly and span throughout the entire year. Music is provided for both the Main Church and the Mission.
Weekly music support provided for Vespers/Evening Prayer, all increased devotions, daily Mass, all weekend Masses, Feast Days and Solemnities. In addition, music support is provided for all baptisms, weddings, funerals, quinceaneras, Reconciliation, First Communion, retreats and all special events (on and offsite). Multiple concerts throughout the year (vocal, instruments, organ) are offered and feature all groups including special event concerts performed by the Director of Music Ministries on our premier Rosales Opus 14.
The Music Ministry produces all worship aids and programs in-house on a daily/weekly basis for all liturgies and events.
The liturgy and music have and will continue to evolve to a more traditional sacred and high Mass setting with emphasis on instruction and understanding/comprehension of the Mass and purpose/intention.
