SACRED MUSIC APPRENTICESHIP
The Sacred Music Apprenticeship at St. John the Beloved provides musical and liturgical training for 11th- 12th grade high school students who wish to serve at Mass through their music. The apprenticeship offers two tracks: cantor and organist. In both tracks, students receive regular formal instruction in the theology, history, music and planning of the liturgy as well as practical experience assisting at the liturgy. Graduates of the Apprenticeship will understand their spiritual and practical role in the liturgy, have the training to plan and lead music for the liturgy, and be well-poised to continue further education after high school if they so wish.
SAINT BENEDICT CANTORUM
“whatever good work you begin to do, beg of Him with most earnest prayer to perfect it.”
LISTEN, all young men, grades 7 through 12:
Starting this September, we invite you to join the Saint Benedict Cantorum, a young men’s group devoted to praying together and singing the 9:00am Mass twice a month.
We will meet every Sunday at 8:00am to pray the Divine Office (Morning Prayer), read excerpts from the Rule of Saint Benedict, and rehearse music for Mass.
To apply for the apprenticeship or if you have questions, please email the Director of Music, James Senson at: [email protected].
Having cast our ballots this past Tuesday to choose who will participate in governing us, we resume the letter written by Saint Louis King of France to his son Philip III. As of today, the Feast of St. Martin of Tours, we have covered most of the holy letter.
