Serving as the cornerstone of our music ministry, the Magis Ensemble serves at our 10:00 am Sunday morning liturgy. In addition, this group is also present for all major liturgies in the parish throughout the Church year. Magis Ensemble is made up of choral singers and executes repertoire that represents the broad spectrum of sacred music in the Catholic tradition. Along with featured choral pieces, the vast amount of music sung by the Magis Ensemble is the song of the assembly. Rehearsals take place approximately one Wednesday evening per month, as well as Sunday mornings from 9:00-10:00 am. Singers of all (or any) experience are welcome!
