Chancel Choir

The Adult Chancel Choir is open to all adults and young adults that want to serve the Lord singing sacred choral music in four parts harmony. The choir rehearses every Wednesday evening, 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the choir room in the church, from September to Pentecost Sunday.  During the summer months the choir rehearses on a reduced schedule. The choir sings at the 9:00 a.m. Sunday Mass and at different special liturgies during the year, including Christmas, Easter, First Communion and Confirmation. We are always looking for new people to join the choir. Come and join us. We pray, learn about music and singing and grow in faith together!

Funeral Choir

“At the funeral liturgy, the Church gathers with the family and friends of the deceased to give praise and thanks to God for Christ’s victory over sin and death, to commend the deceased to God’s tender mercy and compassion, and to seek strength in the proclamation of the Paschal Mystery. The funeral liturgy, therefore, is an act of worship, and not merely an expression of grief.”
from USCCB

The Funeral Choir serves grieving members of our community with the gift of musical support. Members are invited to sing at parish funerals, and usually serve during daytime hours. For more information please contact Dr. Valentino Piran, the Director of Music Ministries at vpiran@stjudefw.org or call at 260.484.6609.

 

Cantors

In confident dialogue with the assembly, cantors offer continuing formation, preparation, flexibility, artistry and mussical support as a gift of service to the poeple of St. Jude Church. They are singers of the psalms and responsorial songs. St. Jude cantors combine year-round weekly rehearsal with continuing musical, liturgical and spiritual growth. Cantors also sing at funerals & weedings upon availability. Cantors need to be of high school age or older.
