Music Ministry

music ministry

Long-time volunteers and LOTS of talent Dedicated to regularly scheduled practices and Mass schedule.

We can always add more voices and instruments. With more singers, we could create small ensembles to sing occasionally at other Masses besides the 9 a.m. Sunday. We are specifically looking to add another accompanist to share the load. Someone with piano skills is great -- knowledge of playing the organ is not required.

SEAS's Music Ministry includes adult ensembles and opportunities for youth to sing music in traditional and contemporary settings. 

 SEAS Adult Choir and Ensembles: The Adult Choir leads the congregation for Sunday Masses, holy days, and special liturgies. Cantors and small ensembles may lead the congregation in liturgical singing with the assistance of an accompanist. The Adult Choir rehearses weekly throughout the academic year and semimonthly during the summer. Instrumentalists are welcome to join the choir.

SEAS Children & Youth Choirs are open to students in 3rd-12th grades from Catholic, private, public, and home schools. The choirs rehearse weekly during the academic year and sing at regularly scheduled Masses.

Cantors/Ensemble Singers:  Individuals or small groups who are comfortable leading the congregation in liturgical singing with the assistance of an accompanist.

SEAS Music Ministry Report
May 2023
The Adult Choir and musicians continue through the Easter Season (Pentecost Sunday) and the
following Solemnities of The Most Holy Trinity and Corpus Christi. The Adult Choir will prepare
music for Deacon Nick Zummo’s Ordination to the Priesthood on June 23 and his first Mass on
June 24.
Children’s and Youth Choirs celebrated the end of their school year activities in late April. The
Youth Choir will have a couple of summer practices in hopes to lead music at two Masses in
July. The Children’s Choir will be on hiatus until August.
With the help of donations, a used Yamaha Clavinova® digital piano has been purchased for the
day chapel. This will provide a quality instrument to fulfill the music needs for small weddings
and funerals and other groups using the day chapel.
We continue to have one volunteer to operate the camera during the Sunday 9 a.m. Mass
livestream on the second Sunday of the month. This person is also available to help with funeral
and special livestream requests during the week. He assisted with multiple livestreams
throughout Holy Week. One or two new volunteers have expressed interest in assisting with
the livestreams.
Our weekly live‐stream schedule is 8:30 a.m. Masses Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday; 6
p.m. Mass on Wednesday; and 9 a.m. Mass on Sunday. This schedule will continue through the
