Music Ministry during COVID-19 Response

Listen to playlists of repertoire from prayer at St. John's here!

Student liturgical ensembles this semester will continue as Christian Life Communities (CLC's) rooted in the charisms of music ministry and sung prayer! New students are welcome and encouraged to join returning choir members for social time, prayer, faith sharing, and some virtual choir opportunities. Please see the Parish Ensembles page for more information.

Choral and congregational singing during liturgies at St. John's are suspended for the time being. Current data suggests that singing together for the length of a liturgy greatly increases the risk of spreading Covid-19 via aerosol particles.The safety of our worshiping community, especially our most vulnerable members, is our top priority.

Contact with any questions about music ministry at Creighton and St. John's.

HOW DO I JOIN? See the Parish Mass Ensembles page for how to join each group. Contact Molly Mattingly, our Director of Music Ministry, with any questions.

To ask about joining Candlelight Choir, contact the student leaders.

But what if my schedule changes? It's easy for music ministers to switch groups, especially between the non-auditioned ensembles!

How do I find the St. John's music room? The music room is right behind the tabernacle. If you're facing the altar from the pews, go through the sacristy on your right or the resource room on your left. There's a small hallway connecting them behind the tabernacle, and that's where the door to the music room is!
