Welcome to St.Mary's Parish Website

Music Ministry

The primary function of music ministry is to enhance the liturgical celebrations by leading the assembly in song and praise. The goal is to encourage full, conscious and active participation. Eight choirs serve the 8 weekend masses and all practice at various times and days during the week. Singing skills are essential and qualified musicians and instrumentalists may be accepted, depending on the choir’s need. All members are expected to attend choir practices as scheduled.


The choir is situated to the north-east side area of the altar, beside St. Joseph’s statue. There are 3 rows of chairs and the church audio-video cabinet is also located here.  (Picture of Sun. 11:15am Mass Choir at communion time Dec. 20, 2015.)20151220-SMP-4thAdventSunday-1115Mass-ChoirArea
