Notre Dame de Chicago encourages parishioners to be involved with the parish's music ministry through developing a community that is committed to finding ways to make music an engaging and exciting aspect of the liturgy. Participation in music ministry can include (but is not limited to) singing, accompanying, or playing instruments in the Community Choir, cantoring at the 5pm Saturday or the 8:30am Sunday masses, or planning musical events outside of mass (concerts, Lessons and Carols, Lenten Reflections, etc.).
Community Choir - Notre Dame de Chicago's Community Choir looks to aid the parish in worship and to encourage involvement of the community while advancing personal spirituality through music. The community choir (started in 2008) seeks individuals who want to be more involved in music ministry. All talent and experience levels are welcome.
The choir meets and rehearses every Tuesday evening at 5:30pm (in the church) to prepare the music for the 10am Sunday liturgy.
Cantoring - Notre Dame de Chicago draws on talented individuals to lead the congregation in worship at our 5pm Saturday and 8:30am Sunday masses. Cantoring is a rewarding opportunity for singers to continue developing their musical abilities through liturgical leadership.
Events Outside of Mass - Notre Dame de Chicago hosts additional musical events during the year. These events require dedication from individuals who look to expand the music ministry beyond the context of mass. Notre Dame has hosted several musical events including Lessons and Carols (an advent concert) and For God So Loved the World (a lenten musical reflection).
If you have any questions, concerns, ideas, or want to be involved with the music ministry at Notre Dame de Chicago, please contact the music director, Michael Ruzicki by email.
