The Co-Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist places heavy emphasis on sacred music, the purpose of which is the glory of God and the sanctification of the faithful. Sacred music lifts our heart to the Mystery of God and so to the real nature and destiny of the whole of reality – an experience we can humbly begin to grasp now because of the incarnation of Christ and the gracious gift of His Spirit to the Church.
The Co-Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist is committed to the preservation, presentation and promotion of the highest quality of liturgical and sacred music.
The Co-Cathedral Choir’s repertoire ranges from traditional to contemporary music. The choir participates in the Sunday 9:30am Mass. Weekly rehearsals are on Wednesdays from 7:30 to 8:45pm.
Resurrection Choir for Funerals
This is the choir that helps elevate prayer at Funeral liturgies. It is a wonderful support for the family, parishioners and visitors who come to give the last farewell to our brother or sister departed to God’s house. Many people have appreciated the presence of this group. The choir simply meets half an hour before each funeral liturgy, sings familiar music and possibly learns some choral parts each time. You will receive an email every time there is a funeral and you are welcome to participate as often as you are able.
As skilled singers, Cantors share with the Director of Music and Liturgy, the responsibility of leading the congregation during Mass. They are scheduled according to their availability.
Liturgical celebrations are always enriched by the presence of one or more musical instruments. The Director of Music and Liturgy will provide scores for the instrument you play.
