Cantors lead the assembly in sung prayer at weekend and holiday liturgies. Cantors must be trained in music and be knowledgeable about Catholic tradition or willing to learn.
Please contact Aaron VanDanacker or Dr. Mary Newton with any questions or to express interest.
No experience is necessary to join the choir. The only requirements are a love of music and the ability to spread joy to those around you! Music is not a natural-born talent that some people possess and others do not. Music is a skill that is acquired through time, dedication, and risk-taking. Our choirs are a safe place where all voices are welcome and cherished, no matter their experience level. Our choirs are built on a foundation of community and seek to minister through joy. This is a safe place to grow your voice and take your love of music to new heights. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Aaron VanDanacker or call (763) 712-7490. We look forward to overflowing the choir area with joyful noise and smiling faces!
