Prince of Peace Music Ministry
Our parish Music Ministry leads the praise of Almighty God through song! We aim to foster a singing assembly at Mass, through choirs and music presented with both skill and grace.
Singers and musicians are encouraged to offer their service in this ministry. Participation is on a select basis; it requires an audition and is dependent upon a person’s ability and the needs of the various music groups.
Distinct choirs sing at three weekend Masses:
Community Choir (Saturday 4 pm Mass)
Prince of Peace Choir (Sunday 9 am Mass)
Contemporary Praise Band (Sunday 11 am Mass)
4 pm Saturday Mass
• Skill Level: Easy •
Singers with good, clear voices are needed. The Community Choir sings a mix of traditional hymns and well-known liturgical music. Rehearsals are Saturday afternoons at 3:15 pm, just prior to the start of Mass.
PRINCE OF PEACE CHOIR
9 am Sunday Mass
• Skill Level: Moderate to Advanced •
Our cathedral-style choir welcomes experienced singers. The ability to read music is preferred, though not required. Rehearsals are Thursdays, 6 to 7:30 pm.
CONTEMPORARY PRAISE BAND

Our Contemporary Praise Band welcomes those able to sing in the style of contemporary Christian music. Experienced band musicians are also invited to audition. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings, 6 to 8 pm.
