SEAS MUSIC MINISTRY - HARMONIZING FAITH THROUGH SONG
SEAS's Music Ministry is a vibrant and dedicated community of long-time volunteers and talented individuals committed to enhancing the liturgical experience through the power of music. With a focus on regularly scheduled practices and Mass schedules, the ministry welcomes more voices and instruments to join its harmonious ensemble.
Opportunities in SEAS Music Ministry:
1. Adult Choir and Ensembles: The Adult Choir leads congregational singing during Sunday Masses, holy days, and special liturgies. Rehearsing weekly throughout the academic year and semi-monthly in the summer, the choir offers a beautiful blend of voices and welcomes instrumentalists to join.
2. Children & Youth Choirs: Open to students in 3rd-12th grades from various educational backgrounds, the Children & Youth Choirs rehearse weekly during the academic year and contribute to the musical richness of regularly scheduled Masses.
3. Cantors/Ensemble Singers: Individuals or small groups comfortable leading the congregation in liturgical singing, with the support of an accompanist.
4. Accompanists: SEAS Music Ministry is actively seeking another accompanist to share the load. While piano skills are preferable, knowledge of playing the organ is not a requirement.
How to Get Involved:
If you are passionate about music, singing, or playing instruments and wish to contribute to the rich tapestry of worship at SEAS, consider joining the Music Ministry. For more information or to express your interest, please contact Melinda Arnold at 887-6472 ext. 606 or [email protected].

SEAS Music Ministry Report
The Adult Choir is beginning preparations for music during Lent and Holy Week. The Choristers are singing preludes occasionally and will resume joining the Adult Choir for the full Mass in March. The Youth Choir will sing for the Confirmation Mass on Feb. 24.
The church’s organist, Gay Ellis, has returned to accompanying the cantors and choir at the 7 and 9 a.m. Sunday Masses after a lengthy medical leave. We pray for her continued recovery.
The livestream schedule continues the same schedule. We have a volunteer to operate the camera for the 9 a.m. Sunday Mass twice a month and for special Masses as needed.
