The Contemporary Music Ensemble leads the song and prayer at the weekend, Saturday evening liturgy at 5:00 PM and occasionally at other liturgies, i.e. First Communion, Confirmation, penance services, etc.

Special requirements of this ministry
No tryout is necessary, only a love of singing or playing an instrument. It is important to commit to attend weekly rehearsals. Car pooling is available if it is necessary to rehearse elsewhere.

Duration of ministry
The Contemporary Music Ensemble sings at the Saturday evening liturgy from the second week of September to the feast of Corpus Christi (usually in June). A yearly commitment is desirable.

Rehearsal times or training sessions
Rehearsal is usually every Thursday: 7:00 PM for instruments, 7:30 PM for choir in Holy Cross Church. There is a yearly day of formation/enrichment on the first Saturday in September.

Expected dress requirements
As with all visible ministers at the Eucharist, dress should be one's "Sunday Best", and should be appropriate for the eucharistic celebration (i.e. No Jeans or Sneakers). There is no specific dress code other than that which all ministers are expected to observe.
