Thank you to our music ministry members who faithfully prepared music for Mass this year!
Our choir has a summer hiatus – no practices from now until we resume on Thursday, August 24. Now is a great time to participate in summer music ministry – just meet 30 minutes before any weekend Mass to prepare. Contact Marilyn Struckmeyer (email@example.com or 919-848-1533) for more information!
Exciting Things Going On in St. Luke’s Music Ministry!
Music Ministry Groups
Looking for an excellent way to give of your time and talent?? Join one of our music ministry groups – choir, ensemble, children’s choir, or Saturday Mass schola. Practices are one time weekly and each group sings at a different Mass.
“Come, let us sing joyfully to the Lord;
cry out to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with a song of praise,
joyfully sing out our psalms.” ~Psalms 95:1 – 2
There are so many ways to become involved in the music ministry at St. Luke’s.
ADULT CHOIR: Our adult choir is a SATB group that practices on Thursdays from 7:30-9:00pm. The choir sings at the 9:00am Mass on Sundays.
Adult choir also prepares music for special liturgies at Christmas (including Lessons & Carols) and Easter.
Instrumentalists are also welcome.
CANTORS: If you aren’t able to commit to one of the groups and you are interested in being a Cantor for Mass (singing the Psalm), contact Marilyn for more details.
CHILDREN’S CHOIR: Children’s choir prepares music for special liturgies such as Christmas, Easter and May Crowning. Please contact Marilyn Struckmeyer if your child is interested in participating! .
ENSEMBLE: Our ensemble is a group comprised of singers and instrumentalists who practice on Thursday evenings from 6:00pm-7:15pm. The Ensemble sings at the 11:00am Mass every Sunday.
5:30 pm MASS ENSEMBLE ~ SATURDAYS!
Are you a regular attendee of the 5:30pm Mass? Are you a singer or instrumentalist? Do you have very little time in your schedule? I have the group for you! If you would like to sing at Mass, but find it difficult to commit to the Thursday evening practice time, please join me on Saturdays at 4:30pm to prepare music for the 5:30pm Mass.
Music is always available ahead of time as well for practice at home.

“Music is the exaltation of the mind
derived from things eternal, bursting forth in sound.”
~St. Thomas Aquinas (Summa Theologica)
