Kilian’s Choir

Celebrating the Eucharist in song
Kilian’s Choir is a two-part choir with an organist and flautist. The Choir places importance on congregational singing and has compiled a book of hymns. They sing regular hymns as well as others, such as pieces from the works of Rutter, Mozart, and Sexton at Mass.

While presently the Choir has only female members it would welcome new male and female members. All ages are welcome to join the choir.

Taizé Prayer and Music Group

“It is a time to rest in God, to let the words listened to and sung penetrate one’s being.” So says Brother John, a Taizé monk.

Taizé Prayer is a simple, meditative form of worship, calling us to dwell deeply on Christ’s presence around and within us.

During Lent and Advent, a group of singers and musicians from the Pastoral Area come together for Taizé services. They play and sing the simple harmonies of Taizé music. The music helps to make the prayer service a meditative and reflective experience for all who participate. A prayerful atmosphere is created in the church.

The service includes scripture readings, questions, time to contemplate, music, and prayer intercessions.

New members always welcome.

St. Joseph’s Church Choir

St. Joseph’s Church Choir includes adults and children and is accompanied by the organ. This is a wonderful addition to the Sunday liturgy.

New members always welcome.
