Along with the Incorruptibles, these groups minister to the 6:00 p.m. Contemporary Masses on a rotating basis, as well as for Easter, Christmas and other occasions as needed.  Interested vocalists and instrumentalists are encouraged to contact Heather Roerig to set up an audition. 


An audition is necessary and the ability to read music is very desirable for those interested in this ministry.  Training is provided to encourage growth & development.

Resurrection Choir
