Music Ministries

At Nativity Catholic Church, it is our hope and goal that regardless of whether you specifically join the music ministry, you and your family are able to fully participate in the liturgy and share your voice with all the saints and angels as we praise God through prayer and song.

Nativity Chorale: Choirs members are always needed from high-school age and older and primarily sing at the 10:30am Sunday liturgy in the Church. The chorale rehearses every Wednesday at 7:30pm in the church.

Family Mass Ensemble:  The ensemble plays at 10:30am Sunday in the Chapel. The ensemble plays primarily contemporary Christian music.  Auditions are required for musicians or singers. The ensemble rehearses at 8:30am on Sunday in the Chapel.

Coro Hispano: The Hispanic Choir plays primarily at the 12:30pm Sunday liturgy and in many of our bilingual liturgies throughout the liturgical year.  All voices and instrumentalists are welcome. An audition is required for instrumentalists. Please consider joining this ministry. The Hispanic Choir plays primarily liturgical music with a Caribbean flavor. The choir rehearses on Thursdays at 7:30pm in the Church.  

Lifeteen Mass Ensemble: The ensemble plays at the 6:00pm Sunday liturgy in the Church.  This group plays primarily contemporary Christian music. Auditions are required for musicians or singers. The ensemble rehearses at 7:00pm on Tuesdays.

Cantors: Are you comfortable singing solos or helping to lead a mass? Please contact the director for an audition and we will get you involved in a training to help leading this great community in song.

I LOVE MUSIC BUT I CANʼT PLAY OR SING!!! Audio Visual Ministry: Are you more of a behind the scenes kind of person? We are always looking for great technical people to help assist with the sound during liturgies and other church events. Even if you do not have any prior sound experience, you can be trained!
 

Organize Hymnals: Help us in keeping our beautiful church and chapel looking great, organizing the hymnals after the daily and weekend liturgies as needed. Unfortunately, many forget their bottles of waters under the pews as well. Your kindness and consideration is part of being good stewards. Thanks in advance for your consideration and help.

“God has bestowed upon his people the gift of song. God dwells within each human person, in the place where music takes its source. Indeed, God, the giver of song, is present whenever his people sing his praises.” (USCCB document: Sing To The Lord: Music in Divine Worship)
