Holy Ghost is home to several choirs, which sing at English, Spanish, and Latin Masses.

Do you love to sing? Consider joining one of our choirs! We’re actively seeking singers of all voice parts, especially those who read music.

Please contact Mary with questions or comments about our choirs or music program.

Ordinary form choirs

Cantate Domino is the choir for the 10 a.m. Sunday Mass, and it rehearses on Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the St. Cecilia (choir) room downstairs.

We sing English chant, Gregorian chant, hymns, and other sacred choral music in English and Latin.

[On hold] The Pope Benedict XVI Schola is an auditioned choir that sings for the 8 a.m. Mass on the second and fourth Sunday of each month. The schola rehearses on Thursdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the St. Cecilia room.

Extraordinary form choir

The Latin Mass choir sings for the extraordinary form Mass celebrated every Sunday at noon. This choir rehearses on Mondays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the St. Cecilia room.

We sing the Gregorian chant propers from the Graduale Romanum, 1962 edition (or sometimes the 1955 edition) as well as polyphonic selections from the Church’s treasury of sacred music.

Festival choir

This new choir is being formed to help us celebrate special feasts of the liturgical year with greater joy and solemnity.

It is open to singers ages 12 and up (preferably those who can read music), and its members will join with the parish’s other choirs to sing some of the music at the primary English Mass (ordinary form) and the Latin Mass (extraordinary form) for occasions such as the Assumption, Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost.

The festival choir presents an ideal opportunity for people who are not able to come to regular weekly rehearsals but who would like to sing a few times a year and are able to commit to a few rehearsals in the four to six weeks preceding these feasts.

Participating in the festival choir does not obligate members to sing for all special feasts.

Rehearsals for the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Sunday, August 15) will begin in July.

Spanish-language choir

Mass in Spanish is celebrated every Sunday at 2:30 p.m. More information coming soon.
