Our Lady of Grace Music Ministry strives to provide opportunities for those with musical gifts to put those gifts at the service of God and the parish community in the liturgy. Our Lady of Grace also strives to be a place where musical gifts can be discovered and cultivated. To that end the following opportunities are offered to all those who are musically inclined or who wish to explore the hidden music within them:
CANTATE Kids – Rehearses Thursday from 4:00–5:30 pm and sings at Mass on Sunday approximately once each month from September – Corpus Christi Sunday. Open to children grades 3–10. Directed by Paul Thomas May.
LAUDATE Ensemble – Rehearses Thursday from 7:00–8:30 pm and sings at Mass on Sunday at 5:30 pm year round. Open to adults and older teens. Directed by Robert Filley.
GAUDETE Choir – Rehearses Thursday from 7:00 – 9:00 pm and sings at Mass on Sunday at 11:00 am from September – Corpus Christi Sunday. Open to adults and older teens. Directed by Paul Thomas May.
Cantors – Cantors are normally chosen from among our choir members, however, you may wish to volunteer for occasional service. Cantors should possess the requisite musical skills to perform their liturgical duty with confidence and grace.
Instrumentalists – Instruments are employed in the liturgy according to need and season. A guitarist or flutist might find a regular place in our Laudate Ensemble while a trumpeter or cellist may be invited to play on occasion. If you play an instrument at the intermediate level or higher then we can find a place for you
To inquire about any of the above opportunities, please contact our Director of Liturgical Music, Paul Thomas May, by email or at (619) 469-3901.
