Liturgical Ministries

We want to thank our many ministers for their stewardship of time and talent.  Our Liturgies would not be as meaningful without your time and talent.  We encourage your involvement as Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Altar Servers and sacristans.

Music Ministries

 

Music ministers at Holy Name want to help make your prayer experience at Mass excellent. Scroll down to learn more about our groups.

Is joining our mission to lead people in worship something you want to be a part of?


7:30 Choir: This smaller choir sings at the 7:30am Mass each Sunday. We gather around 7:15 right before we sing, and stay after Mass for 15 minutes to rehearse for the coming week. Simply come to the loft at 7:15 when on weekends that you would like to sing and join in!


9:30 Choir: This larger choir sings at the 9:30am Mass each Sunday (with an optional hiatus in the summer). We practice in the choir loft from 6-7pm on Thursday evenings, and gather to warm up at 9am on Sundays. 


Middle School Music: This is a group of 6th-8th graders who sing every other weekend at 11:30 Mass. We gather at 10:45am the Sundays we sing. 


Faith Alive: This guitar ensemble plays every other weekend at 11:30 Mass. Guitars, bass guitars, mandolins-anything with strings is welcome! Singers who want to join in are also welcome. 


Youth Worship Band(YWB): High school and college students come together to form a band and lead contemporary music at the 5:30pm Mass. This group also travels to visit other churches and community events spreading the message that young people can lead excellent, prayerful music. 


Cantors: Cantors are used at 4pm, 7:30 and 9:30 to help lead the assembly in song. The cantor is sometimes by themselves, sometimes backed up by the choir. Practicing and preparing on your own time is a must, but extra rehearsals times can be scheduled with an accompanist if need be.
