St. Juliana Parish is blessed with many talented choir members and musicians who share their time and gifts with us each week at our Sunday liturgies. There are currently seven musical groups who enhance and encourage our worship. If you would be interested in joining one, or more, of these groups just contact Margie Shiel or come to our next rehearsal! Listed below is a brief description of each group and a rehearsal schedule. Every group is very friendly, and loves to sing and play and share their love of God through song. All rehearsals take place in the St. Juliana Parish Church. Thank you for your interest!

A newly formed choir consisting of those of high school age through their 20s who wish to share their love of music and liturgy with their peers and their parish! This choir sings once per month, often at the 5:00 PM mass on a day convenient to most members. We rehearse on the Thursday previous to the chosen mass date from 7:00 – 8:00 PM and from 4:00 – 5:00 PM right before the mass. This enthusiastic new choir is on the look out for new members!
We now have seven cantors serving us on the weekends. All are talented singers who have previously, or are, taking voice lessons as well as cantor school lessons. These cantors have made a commitment to St. Juliana to serve as a cantor on a rotating schedule at one mass every other week. They are a very dedicated group who would love to welcome new members also. The cantors meet approximately three times a year at a convenient time for all.
