CONTEMPORARY CHOIR

Mission: As a music ministry, our primary mission is to magnify and glorify Jesus Christ through sacred music. Furthermore, it is also the mission of the music ministry to facilitate the fulfillment of the overall vision of St. Joseph Church through the delivery of spiritual and spirit-led music that enhances the liturgy and anointed music that edifies, inspires and challenges the Body of Christ and further enables them to experience Christ on a personal level.

Talents: The only qualification needed is the desire to glorify God through your voice, with the purpose of rejoicing in and worshiping the Lord through music and singing. We accomplish this by recruiting new choir members and teaching new music.

Time: Commitment of time is one weekly rehearsal for about an hour generally in the afternoon; on occasion in the evening and the Saturday 4 p.m. Mass.
