There are many passages in the Bible instructing God’s people to worship him through song. Music is an integral part of the sacred liturgy. The Blessed Trinity Music Ministry offers several opportunities for involvement, and you do not have to be experienced to join!

Adult Choirs: PSALT and Traditional
The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7-8:30pm, and sings at the 8:45am or 11am Sunday Masses. If you are a teen or an adult of any age you can join this group. We sing everything from traditional hymns to modern Christian contemporary songs. Whether you are a seasoned veteran of choral music or a beginner, come join this enjoyable group. Not only do we sing together, but we also fellowship together!
The PSALT group is also a multi-part harmony group that incorporates instruments and light percussion for the Saturday 6pm Masses. With a varied repertoire and a dedicated core group of musicians, PSALT welcomes singers and instrumentalists to join their ranks! Rehearsals are just before the Saturday Mass at 4:30pm.
The Youth Choir welcomes children and students from Grade 1 to 8. Although in the past, the group used to be split into two groups, (Grades 1-2: Primary Praise -and Grades 3-8: Junior Choir), it is presently a single group, rehearsing on Thursdays from 3:10 to 4:00pm. There are plans to create a Schola, a small madrigal singing group more dedicated to students Grades 6-8 and older

Cantors/Leaders of songs
Cantors lead the responsorial psalms from the ambo for Masses, and are responsible for leading the congregation in song and liturgical musical responses. Cantors must be experienced singers and should be members of either the Adult Choir or PSALT. Rehearsals are accomplished during choir rehearsals, with a final review prior to each Mass.
