Music Ministries

St. Malachy Church invites you to join the Music Ministry Program. Read the following descriptions and decide how you can share your talent. For more information about these ministries, please contact Laurie Lanz at (412) 331-4664.


Adult Choir

The Adult Choir sings at the 11:00 AM Mass throughout the year. Rehearsals are held each Wednesday from 7:00 to 9:00 PM in the Music Room of St. Malachy School. We need both male and female voices. You do not need to know how to read music, just a desire to praise God through song!


Children's Choir

The Childrenís Choir is open to any child from grades 2 to 5. Your child does not have to belong to St. Malachy School in order to be a member. Rehearsals are held Wednesdays from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM in the Music Room of St. Malachy School. The Childrenís Choir sings once a month at the 11:00 AM Mass. The choir also sings at the 4:00 PM Christmas Eve Mass and the 12:30 PM Easter Day Mass. Children in the choir that attend St. Malachy School will participate in the weekly Friday 8:45 AM Mass. Introduce your child to the Music Program by having them join the Childrenís Choir!


Resurrection Choir

The Resurrection Choir sings for all funerals held at St. Malachy Church. There are no rehearsals for this choir, but you must be able to sing in tune. If you are unable to attend weekly rehearsals, but have a flexible schedule and a desire to share your talents for this important ministry, this may be the choir for you!


Contemporary Choir

The Contemporary Choir sings once a month on a rotating Mass schedule, either the 4:00 PM Saturday or 11:00 AM Sunday Mass. The Contemporary Choir is accompanied by guitars. If you enjoy this type of music, we are looking for new members of all ages!



The Handbell Choir accompanies the Adult Choir at the 11:00 AM Mass during the Christmas and Easter Seasons. The Choir also plays for special occasions. New ringers are invited to join the Handbell Choir. Musicians ages 13 and older (even adults) are welcome, but you must like to have fun while praising God and making a joyful praise! The Bell Choir rehearses on Sundays at 9:00 AM. Please contact Laurie if you are interested.

We are also looking to expand the Music Program by adding other instruments. If you are proficient at an instrument and would like to enhance the Mass, please call Laurie to set up an audition.



The Cantor is both a singer and leader of congregational song. Once the congregation is singing with confidence, the cantorís voice correspondingly recedes. The Cantor needs to sing well and be a strong leader.
