Music is at the heart of worship. It is one of the most beautiful forms of prayer. Whether participating or just listening, music touches all of us in a deep and meaningful way. We can express our love, our joy, and even our sorrow through music. Our mission is to serve God through inspiring music that touches people’s hearts deeply with God’s love, wisdom and healing.
What Do We Do?
Our 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM Choir and Ensemble, Children’s Choir, Cantors and 6:00 PM Choir and Ensemble lead the assembly in songs that praise God and lift our hearts. They sing all styles of music, from Chant to Christian Rock. Music is part of almost every event at St. Hubert. The most important contribution of the Music Ministry is participation at weekend, Holy Week, and Christmas liturgies. We have also performed in concert for our community and have hosted concerts from visiting artists as well.
Ways to Participate in the Music Ministry?
9:00 AM and 10:45 AM Choir and Ensemble
The singers from this choir rehearse once a week from 7:30-9:30 PM. Rehearsals generally begin in mid-September and end in late May or early June. The instrumentalists have one special rehearsal with the choir before each major holiday season (Christmas and Easter) in addition to rehearsing with the choir 25 minutes before each Mass on Sundays. The choir sings either the 9:00 AM or 10:45 AM Mass and for special holidays during the year. Singers and instrumentalists of all ages are encouraged to join. All levels of skill are welcome.
To be a cantor an audition is required. Being a choir member is a good way to receive training that can prepare one to be a cantor. Cantors receive additional training and preparation at least once a month, at the end of choir rehearsals as needed. Cantors are scheduled to sing for one to four Masses per month depending upon their availability and the Church’s needs.
Children third grade and up can sing in the Children’s Choir. Rehearsals are once a week for 45 minutes, in the early evening. They sing at the 9:00 or 10:45 Mass about once a month, Easter morning Mass. Rehearsals begin in late September, and the last day that they sing for Mass is on Mother’s day.
