Welcome to the Music Ministry here at Holy Redeemer. If you are interested in serving as a cantor, a choir member, an instrumentalist, or would like to help out the music ministry team,
please contact Ryan Peteraf, Director of Music, [email protected], (508) 945-0677.
Holy Redeemer Choir:
The choir here at Holy Redeemer sings at the 10:00 AM Sunday Mass from September – June. The choir sings a variety of sacred music from the medieval era through present day. Catholic choir favorites such as “Ave Verum Corpus” by Mozart, or singing hymns in four parts are some of the great joys that the choir provides here at Holy Redeemer. While knowing how to read music is helpful to be in choir, it is not a necessity, just bring your voice and love for music! If interested in singing please contact Ryan Peteraf at [email protected], (508) 945-0677. We would love to have you sing with us!
Holy Redeemer Children’s Choir:
We are interested in starting a children’s choir. If you have a child or family member that enjoys singing, and would like them to become an active member in the church, then this would be great for them! If interested in signing your child or family member up, please contact Ryan Peteraf.
Holy Redeemer Cantors:
A cantor is someone who helps lead the music in the Mass by using their voice. We are currently seeking people who have an interest in singing, and would like to serve in this important role of ministry.
Holy Redeemer Instrumentalists:
If you play an instrument, we would like you to share your talents with us. There is always a place for instruments in worship, especially on Holy Days.
