Adult Choir

The adult choir is open to parishioners and community members who are age 18 and older.  The ability to read music is helpful, but not necessary.  The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings in the church from 7:15 to 9:00 PM and sings the 10:00 AM Mass mostly every Sunday, from the week after Labor Day until Pentecost.  In addition the choir sings for the Evening Prayer for the Dead on the first Sunday of November, Christmas Eve, 10:00 PM Mass, Christmas Day, 10:00 AM Mass, Mass of the Lord’s Supper, Good Friday Liturgy, Easter Vigil, and Easter Sunday, 10:00 AM.  To join the Adult Choir or for more information please contact the music director or call 440-734-2414 x232.

Cantors

The ministry of Cantor is more specialized and requires a larger commitment than the Adult Choir.  Cantors sing on a rotating basis at all weekend liturgies at St. Clarence.   Cantors rehearse on Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM and when needed at other times with the music director for special liturgies and services.  To be a part of the cantor ministry please contact the music director or call 440-734-2414 x232.
