2022 Retirement Fund for Religious

Aging religious need your help. Senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests have offered their lives in service to others—educating the young, comforting the sick, seeking justice for the oppressed. Today, many are frail, elderly, and in need of assistance. Your gift to the Retirement Fund for Religious helps to furnish medications, nursing care, and other necessities. Please give generously to the second collection on December 3 & 4.

For information, visit: retiredreligious.org.  Please give at your local parish.

Music Ministry

The Liturgical Choir

The Liturgical Choir is comprised of parishioners who desire to bring more joy and a deeper meaning to our liturgies through song. They minister at the 11:00 a.m. English Masses at Mary Mother of Peace from the second Sunday after Labor Day through the feast of Corpus Christi. The Liturgical Choir is also the principal ensemble for special parish liturgies such as Christmas Mass and Easter Vigil. Music repertoire for the Choir ranges from traditional to contemporary. The choir also sings for special liturgical celebrations such as Lessons and Carols and the Sung Rosary. Rehearsals are held each Saturday morning from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at MMOP.

The Handbell Choir

The SMA/MMOP Handbell Bell Choir rings on a four-octave set of Schulmerich Handbells and is one of the few Catholic churches in southern Delaware blessed with the opportunity to do so. People join to play what is, in effect, one instrument. The Handbell Choir plays hymn settings, processionals, service music and handbell repertoire at select Masses and special liturgies throughout the year. Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at MMOP. This choir is a wonderful way to get involved with the Music Ministry here at parish! The ability to read music is helpful, but not a requirement however, a love of music is a prerequisite!

The Contemporary Ensemble

The Contemporary Ensemble leads music at the English Masses for both Mary Mother of Peace and St. Michael the Archangel, from the second Sunday after Labor Day through the feast of Corpus Christi. In addition to vocalists, we utilize many instruments including guitars, percussion, bass and woodwinds, and typically rehearse 60-90 minutes before each liturgy. This Ensemble is open to all High School youth and adults of the parish. Come join us!

The Resurrection Choir

The Resurrection Choir is a group of parishioners (both vocalists and musicians) who lead the hymn singing, psalmody and mass parts as ministry to the grieving families of the parish. This dedicated group is always open to additional members and rehearses one hour prior to the funeral liturgy.  

 The Cantor Ministry

In dialogue with the Assembly, cantors offer musical support as a gift of service to the people of St. Michael the Archangel/Mary Mother of Peace.  Through sung prayer, they lead the assembly to full, active, and conscious participation for all our parish liturgical celebrations.

The Cantor:

  • Proclaims the Word (responsorial psalm) in dialogue with the assembly
  • Leads dialogical music throughout liturgy: litanies, psalms, call and response pieces
  • Leads verses at communion, allowing people to process at Communion without books
  • Teaches new music and supports the assembly learning new liturgical repertoire
  • Prays the general intercessions during the Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter seasons

Through sung prayer, cantors enjoy praising God, growing musically and spiritually, while enjoying each other’s friendship/mentorship. A strong pleasant voice, good sight-reading skills and an openness to learning new musical repertoire is recommended.

If you are interested in any of these ministries, please email the Music Director, Paul Szczerowski, at [email protected] or call (202) 489-7073.
