Being a cantor involves more than standing up and singing alone. Cantors make the assembly’s prayer possible through song. They lead the hymns and responses of the mass and proclaim the Word of God in song during the Responsorial Psalm. Every cantor must have a strong and clear singing voice and a desire to actively encourage the assembly to sing. One does not need to be a member of the choir to serve as a cantor. Workshops for cantors are held every Wednesday at 6:00pm in the church.
