Contemporary Music Ensemble

The mission of The Contemporary Music Ensemble at St. Matthew is to support the sung prayer of the Catholic Liturgy, reinforce the message of the Gospels, and lead the congregation into a deeper communion with God through the use of both Traditional Catholic Hymns and Contemporary Praise & Worship style music. The Ensemble consists of the Contemporary Choir and the Contemporary Band.  The Contemporary Choir is open to Middle School and High School youth. The Contemporary Band is open to High School and Adult members who demonstrate proficiency on Piano, Bass, Guitar, Drums, or Percussion. Bass and Guitar players must provide their own instruments and sound equipment.  We serve at the Sunday, 10:30am Mass. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 5:00-6:45pm in the Church.
