Contemporary Music Ensemble (CME)
Organized by Krys Kozinski-Sansing with the help of Mary Jane Meintzer in the Winter of 2005, the parish’s contemporary music group was originally called, ‘Teen CME’. Parish youth, ages 13 to 18, have been the heart of this ensemble for many years. The group is presently under reorganization. More information forthcoming!

The Parish Adult Choir and Hispanic Music Ministry Group join voices during Holy Week and for special celebrations as they arise. We truly enjoy singing together and appreciate each other for the musical gifts each one of us has to bring to liturgy. What a blessing it is to be able to sing God's praises together!
The word ‘Cantor’ derives from the word ‘cantare’, meaning ‘to sing’. The Hebrew word, however, is ‘hazzan’ which requires the person to have great faith.
Being a cantor involves…
Cantors and musicians alike, attend scheduled meetings from September through June. The purpose of these meetings is so each cantor and musician is be fully prepared to sing and play the service music, as chosen for each Mass or liturgy.
Cantors and musicians are also expected to prepare on their own time, for any service to which they are assigned. It is of utmost importance to be ready without question, before cantoring or playing the organ for Mass.
With a larger cantor base, less liturgies may be assigned, and everyone shares the load equally. Also, when a cantor or musician needs to take off, we all cover for each other.
Adults and youth ages 13 or older are most welcome to be part of this ministry. Before cantoring on one’s own, each prospective cantor has the opportunity to shadow someone who is well seasoned in cantoring. This is all an important process as the role of the cantor is a very important one!
