Music Ministry animates the community’s worship through music, vocal and instrumental. There are a variety of ways to be involved in our work:
Chapel Choir provides music at the Sunday masses in the Chapel of St. Ignatius, and also at special university liturgies throughout the year. The Chapel Choir also offers participants a small faith community with whom to pray and develop meaningful friendships. Membership is by audition, but vocalists of all experience levels are encouraged to apply.
Chapel Instrumentalists support and enhance the sound of our music in worship. Woodwinds, strings, percussionists, guitarists and keyboard players are welcome.
Vespers, a celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours, is a centuries old honoring of the passing of daytime through prayer, scripture, chant and song. Vocalists for schola are welcome.
Taizé prayer is a prayer form that originated at Taizé, an ecumenical monastery in France and a movement that has been extremely popular with young adults around the world. These services include candlelight, repetitive chants, scripture, prayer and silence. Volunteers are needed to serve on the planning team, also to sing in the schola, play instruments and accompany on guitar.
See the annual brochure for more details and a calendar of our year’s events.
