Cantors provide musical leadership at all Masses, as well as Holy Days of Obligation, weddings, funerals, and prayer services. The Cantor ministry is open to qualified singers by audition.

The Cantor helps the congregation enter more fully into the mystery of God through music. The cantor leads the assembly into full song, and proclaims the Psalm with clarity and beauty.

When do cantors rehearse? 30 minutes before the Mass you are singing, and as-needed in group rehearsals with other cantors.
When do cantors sing? Every Mass has a cantor, and cantors are scheduled on weekly or bi-weekly basis.
Who can join? Singers with a confident vocal ability, ability to learn music, ability to sightread at an intermediate level, and clear diction for the proclamation of the Psalm.

Patronage of Saint Gregory the Great

Many liturgical reforms are attributed to Saint Gregory the Great (or Pope Gregory I), but most famously is the standardization and documentation of the sacred tradition of chant. As a patron saint of musicians, singers, students, and teachers, Saint Gregory is an appropriate patron for cantors. Cantors, who sing, teach, and lead the congregation in the music of the liturgy, model themselves after this great doctor of the Church.
