PARISH MASS ENSEMBLES
There are many opportunities to get involved with Music Ministry at St. John's! Creighton students are part of every ensemble and congregation, and a couple groups are set aside for student membership only. Take a look to see what might be a good fit for you! We'd love to have you join us in leading prayer through song. Student parishioners can stay in the know through the Student Music Ministry list-serv. Non-student parishioners can join the Music Ministry list-serv to stay up to date.

The Saturday 5:00pm Mass Community Ensemble includes choir, synth woodwind, guitars, and piano. They rehearse* at 4:00pm on Saturdays. Current members include parishioners from Creighton's student body, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as the Omaha community. This is an open-membership ensemble (no audition, just come for rehearsal). New members are always welcome - we are especially looking for more singers and a percussionist in this group!

aThese Masses take place only during the academic year, when classes or finals are in session the following Monday. They will not take place on Labor Day Weekend, the first Sunday of Fall Break, during winter break, or on the first Sunday of Spring Break.
