Choir is one part of the parish's total music ministry. The group contributes its combined talents, adding to the musical side of worship. Shared music, prayer, and fellowship mark its gatherings. The group contributes to all kinds of liturgies and events at St. Vincent's. Anyone (7th grade through adult), with an instrumental or vocal inclination is invited to share their gifts with the parish, through this group. This choir sings the third Sunday of each month at the 10AM Mass. In addition, they sing for many liturgical celebrations such as Christmas Eve, Easter Vigil, etc. Rehearsals are usually held on Tuesdays prior to the scheduled Mass. Rehearsal dates, times and locations appear in the parish bulletin.

Cantors or Song Leaders are a vital part of our music ministry. It is the cantor's responsibility to welcome the congregation to Mass, announce the songs, lead the hymns during the liturgy while encouraging the congregation to participate in sung prayer. Cantors are assigned on a rotating schedule.
