CATHOLICS of Brisbane archdiocese are being invited to be part of a choir and group of musicians at a one-off event at St Stephen’s Cathedral.
The archdiocese’s Secretariat of Parish Pastoral Councils is forming a “whole of the archdiocese” choir to lead the music for the annual Parish Pastoral Council Commissioning Mass at the cathedral on July 6.
Evangelisation Brisbane project officer Presentation Sister Mary Franzmann said the secretariat would welcome singers and musicians from all parishes and deaneries.
“Participation in the choir is a practical help to those involved in the Mass, but also a statement of our community and unity,” Sr Franzmann said.
“Obviously this is a call to Catholic choirs, individual choristers and to cantors, but it is also a call to conductors and instrumentalists – guitarists, pianists, organists, flautists, trumpeters and drummers etc who give their services to parish churches.
“It will be great to have musicians of all kinds doing one thing together – joining in song.”
Archbishop Mark Coleridge will celebrate the Mass at 2.30pm on July 6.
Cathedral director of music Dr Ralph Morton will conduct the choir, and will lead a rehearsal on the day from 12.30-2pm in the Francis Rush Centre (next to the cathedral).
