New Cathedral Choir Auditions

Our current Cathedral Choir, formed in 2013, provides musical leadership primarily for the 10:00 a.m. Sunday Mass as well as various parish and diocesan celebrations. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the Our Lady’s Chapel. Membership is open to all, Catholic or Non-Catholic, by placement audition. Each year, the Cathedral Choir presents a major choral work for All Souls Vespers, performs in “Christmas at the Cathedral” as part of the Friends of Cathedral Music Concert Series, sings for the Celtic Cross Mass and the St. Patrick’s Day Mass, participates in the Tenebrae service during Holy Week, and sings for the Marian Vespers in May. Placement auditions are always held at the end of August and special auditions are available throughout the year. For more information, please go to sjbmusic.org, and fill out the online form. We are pleased to offer a new choir, the Cathedral Schola. This ensemble will provide choral music for the 11:30 a.m. Sunday mass, September-May, and for the 10:00 a.m. mass May – August. It is made up of select musicians and membership is by audition only. The choir is especially dedicated to the rich musical heritage of the Roman Catholic Church, from Gregorian Chant to vocal polyphony and beyond. It is currently made up of a 4 member professional choral ensemble. Members attend the Cathedral Choir rehearsals. To audition, complete this form.

The Bible Timeline

Reading the Bible should bring us closer to Christ, but understanding it is often difficult.  The good news is that you can understand the Bible, and The Bible Timeline makes it easy.

 

The Bible Timeline is a Catholic Bible study that can help anyone to make sense of the Bible and experience the life-changing power of God’s Word.  The study takes you on a journey through the entire Bible and brings you deep into each period of salvation history, so that you can discover the amazing story woven throughout all of Scripture.  The Bible Timeline will help you understand the Bible and have a deeper relationship with Christ.
