Music at Saint Helen
About Music Ministry
If you’d like to get involved or want more information, please contact Adrian Soltys: [email protected]
Saint Helen’s music ministry is an ensemble-based program. This means that we strive to have every Mass led by an ensemble of a few musicians. Our four primary ensembles are the Festival Chorale, Hummingbirds, the Sunday Evening Worship Team and Music4Mercy,
The Festival Chorale is open to all those 9th grade and older. We sing in 4 part harmony and sing a mix of traditional and contemporary music. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will meet seasonally during the 2021-2022 year for Christmas and Easter.
Rehearsals for Lent and Easter will resume on Tuesday, February 22nd at 7:00pm.
The Hummingbirds is our children’s choir, open to 3rd through 7th graders. Due to Covid gathering limits and attempts to social distance, we will meet seasonally during the 2021-2022 year for Christmas and Easter.
The Sunday Evening Worship Team provides music each Sunday evening for the 6:30pm mass. This casual group rehearses at 5:30pm on Sundays and stays through for mass. It is open to 8th graders and older. Instrumentalists and singers are welcome.
Music4Mercy is our auditioned band which provides music for 3 liturgies a weekend. We are always seeking talented instrumentalists and worship leaders to commit to this group. Ability to read charts/sheet music is preferred.
Following Archdiocesan protocol, masks are not required but encouraged for those who are unvaccinated or for those who would still like to wear one. Children in Hummingbirds must wear masks.
