Our PhilosopHy

The Music Ministry at CCJGS is a combination of volunteer and professional musicians actively enriching the liturgy and worship of Mass. The music at CCJGS is a very important aspect of liturgy, and helps develop the tone of each Mass that it supports. There are four opportunities is sing or play in choir! On special occasions, like Covenant Sunday, all choirs join together to create the Covenant Choir.
