Music Ministry

The Music Ministry at St. Bede provides the liturgical music including musicians and cantors for all liturgies.  This includes Sunday Masses, Funerals, Weddings and any other special event.  Dr. Anthony Lupica, our Director of Music handles all requests. 

Music and song are ancient Catholic traditions at Mass and are beautiful forms of prayer to be shared as a faith community - the organist, the choir and the assembly joining together -  the organist provides the musical background, the choir and cantors leading in song, and the assembly fully participating.  All together singing joyous hymns of praise, prayer and thanksgiving.

St. Bede's Music Ministry consists of two choirs, cantors, an organist, and additional instruments when appropriate.  Our volunteer choirs not only sing at Masses on Sundays, they usually give a concert or two each year.  Every member will tell you that the time and effort it takes to be a part of the music ministry's choirs are well worth every minute spent in practice and performing.  They will also admit to developing a deeper spiritual connection to the Liturgy because of their participation in the Music Ministry.  

The two St. Bede Choirs are:

Contempory Choir

Sings at the 9:00 am Sunday Mass (8:15 am warm up)
Rehearsals are Tuesday Evenings 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm 

Traditional Choir
