The 10:30 Mass choir leads the singing each Sunday from September through June. People who enjoy singing and who want to be part of a supportive community that prays (and parties) together are invited to become part of this music ministry. Musicians also welcomed to inquire about sharing your talents too. Practices are on Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm in the church.
"I feel very much at home as a member of St. Bernard’s Adult Choir. My years as a Music Minister have brought great joy and satisfaction. As a convert to Catholicism, my participation in ministry has strengthened my faith and has guided me in a deeper understanding of the love God has for me. My fellow choir members have become like family and that gives me great comfort."
" Choir has enriched my spiritual life as well as my daily life. I love to sing. The songs we sing have true meaning. They reaffirm God’s love and promise for us. It is praying twice. I can feel the presence of God in our singing. The ladies and men in choir show God’s love with the caring for each other. The different parts carry out to make a sweet sound. It enriches our worship. As the song says, “we are many parts we are all one body.” Come and share your voice if you feel God’s calling. “All are welcome in this place”
5:30 Mass Contemporary Band
The choir that leads everyone in singing at the 5:30pm Sunday Mass is led by Terence Purtell and has been made up of high school and college age young men and women, along with a few older folks. We are happy to have new members join in. Practices are on Sunday afternoons at 4:30pm sharp. Stop in for a practice if you'd like to be part of this music ministry. We also are on the lookout for instrumentalists who play well and want to share their musical talents.
