Music Ministry | Choirs, Cantors and Musicians
The partner parishes of Connellsville take great pride in their long traditions of dedicated and talented choirs, cantors and musicians. Each parish has a committed group of volunteers who enhance our liturgical celebrations by sharing their musical talents.
The Connellsville Catholic Community Children's Choir is made up of third- through sixth-graders from all three parishes. Junior and senior high school students serve the choir as cantors and leaders of song. The choir sings for liturgies in all three partner parishes throughout the school year and rehearses Saturdays at 11 a.m. in Sciberras Hall at Immaculate Conception.
Each of the partner parishes of Immaculate Conception, St. Rita and St. John has an adult choir. Junior and senior high school members of the Immaculate Conception Choir also perform in the Junior-Senior High Choral Ensemble.
While the ability to read music is very helpful, it is not necessary for membership in a choir. New members, of all ages, are welcome. Musicians such as guitarists, flutists and pianists are also invited to participate.
Practices are scheduled individually for each parish, and according to the liturgical season. Please contact the parish office, one of the choir directors or a current choir member for further information.
