  • Do I have to be able to read music?
    • No.  Although the ability to read music is helpful for joining any of our ensembles, it is not a requirement.  Several current members are unable to read music, but they learn by ear.  We will teach you some basic music reading skills.

  • Where are rehearsals located? What are the rehearsal times?
    • Rehearsals take place in the church.  Before serving at Mass, warm-ups occur in the music offices, with the exception of the praise groups and the bell choir.  Please see each group's individual page for rehearsal times.
