Music Ministry provides opportunities to worship and praise the Lord through vocal or instrumental music. Adults and youth are welcome to join the music ministry program at Holy Spirit anytime during the year.

The Holy Spirit Adult Choir assists with the musical leadership at the 10:15am Sunday Mass and also provides music for special liturgies throughout Lent and Advent. The choir incorporates a broad range of music into the liturgy, from traditional hymns to contemporary Christian songs.

Our Spirit and Song music group, comprised of high school students and young adults, sings on a monthly basis for Mass as well as for Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, special events and outreach projects throughout the year.

The Youth Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings during the school year and sings for select Masses during Ordinary Time as well as for Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost.

In addition to working on music for the weekend liturgies, all three choirs at Holy Spirit prepare for concert performances throughout the year.

Cantors help lead the congregation in song. Vocal training and proficient music reading ability are necessary if you are interested in auditioning to become a cantor.
