Living Stations of the Cross
The SES Music Ministry is searching for Ringers and Singers! Surely there is undiscovered talent sitting in our pews! We are looking to add more bodies to our already vibrant ministry.
Handbell Choir: This group rehearses on Monday evenings from 7:00-8:00pm and plays approximately once monthly at the 8am Mass. While some musical experience is helpful, it is not necessary. We will train anyone who is interested. We are looking to add at least 3 new members.
Contemporary Choir: Our Contemporary Choir rehearses on Monday evenings from 8:00-9:00pm and sings weekly at the 9:30am Mass. Previous musical experience is not necessary. Come with a smile and a pencil!
Adult Choir: This choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:30-9:00pm and sings weekly at the 11:30 mass. While all are welcome, we are particularly looking for women and more specifically sopranos (melody singers, usually). Musical experience is not necessary. Ideally, we'd like to add 3 more voices to each section.
Celebration Choir: This is a group that comes together for special liturgical feasts as well as important parish functions. If you feel you can only commit to sing a few times a year, this is your chance. Please make yourself known and add your name to the list so you can be contacted when it's time to begin preparation.
Instrumentalists: Do you play an instrument in your basement with no one listening? Now's your chance to let your light shine! Let us know and we'll use you wherever we can!
