Music Ministry

It is said that those who sing, pray twice.

The Music Ministry Music touches the soul in a way that nothing else can.  It is very important that we develop this ministry so the assembly will respond joyfully and leave Mass fulfilled and excited.

Cantor

The cantor must be able to lead the assembly in song. They will sing the Responsorial psalm and Alleluia acclamation. Cantors announce hymns, greet the congregation at the beginning of Mass. This position is vital to the music ministry to help bring the liturgy together.

Choir

Due to Covid-19 we are not having Choir due to the Diocese of Grand Rapids health restrictions. To join the adult choir when we restart all a parishioner needs to be old enough to read the words and learn the music, have a desire to grow in the development of his/her musical skill and the focus to move forward in this ministry. There should be a willingness to cooperate with the director of music and his assistant. You must make a commitment to be at choir practice on a regular basis and sing at Mass on Sunday. You also must be a help in recruiting new choir members.

The adult choir sings at the 10:30 am Mass at Prince of Peace.

Children’s Choir

Due to Covid-19 we are not having Choir due to the Diocese of Grand Rapids health restrictions.  When we start back up again, to join the children’s choir you must be old enough to sing and follow instructions.  If you child is interested please contact Kristen Avila at 231 744-3321 ext 127.

Children’s Hand Chime Choir

Due to Covid-19 we are not having Choir due to the Diocese of Grand Rapids health restrictions.   We will hopefully start the Children’s Hand Chime Choir again soon. Members of the Chime choir do not necessarily need to read music, however they will need to make the practices on a regular basis.
