St. Pius X - A Welcoming Catholic Community

Cantors

Cantors play an essential role in both proclaiming the Word of God in song and  inviting the faithful to join in sung prayer during the liturgies. To be a cantor requires more than just singing; it requires adequate preparation, an overall understanding of the Mass as well as the function of music its context, and a sense of ministry to the parish. Because of the prominent role the cantor plays in our liturgies, a certain level of musicianship and music reading ability is necessary. Training for cantors is provided in a group setting once a year or individually by appointment with Katie Stinson, Director of Music and Liturgy.
