The choir enhances the liturgical celebrations by leading the music ministry at Sunday Masses through hymns and songs that will ensure the “full, conscious, and active participation in the liturgical celebration” (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 14). The whole church community benefits from participating in the Eucharist through prayerful music.
Our parish offers many opportunities to "praise the Lord in song". Join one of our Mass choirs or audition for the Stella Maris Concert Choir http://www.stellamaris.ca/.
An auditioned ensemble based out of Star of the Sea Parish under the direction of Trudi Stammer, the Stella Maris Concert Choir includes Star of the Sea parishioners, members of other parishes in the deanery and people from the local community. The members of the choir, while eclectic in terms of age and experience, share a common faith. They aim to evangelize through song, performing a primarily sacred choral repertoire, including both traditional and contemporary selections. In addition to the choir's two main performances of the year (a Christmas Concert in December and a Choral Meditation on the Passion of Christ on Palm Sunday), they also provide music for various Masses, fundraising endeavours, and community events throughout the year.
