The Music Ministry at Mater Christi Parish is made up almost entirely of parishioners with just one thing in common - a desire to share their love of music with their spiritual community. Musicians of all skill levels have a place at Mater Christi Parish, with an opportunity to learn and improve, as well as to minister.

Singing with our Mater Christi Musical Groups is a wonderful way to share time and talent with your parish. Participation in the choir helps us to develop our faith and our musical skills while meeting terrific people!

If you are thinking of joining any of our music groups, or have any questions, please call Jeanine Watylyk, Music Director at 708-447-5189 or by email at TFWJW@SBCGLOBAL.NET or see her after any weekend Mass.



Formerly known as the Children’s Choir, this group is for singers second thru eighth grade.

Our Youth Choir sings twice a month alternating between 5 pm, 9:30 am and 11 am Masses.

Members sing and will have the opportunity to play percussion instruments.



This choir rehearses weekly on Thursday evenings at 7 pm, and sings at the 9:30 am Mass on three Sundays each month.

We welcome singers of all ability levels, and there are no auditions. Instrumentalists of all kinds are also welcome.

Our first rehearsal will be on September 15, 2016 in the choir loft.

Our Sunday morning choir sings at the 9:30 am Mass three Sundays a month.



This group of singers, guitars, drums and other instruments sings at the 5 pm Mass on the first and third Saturday of the month, starting on September 17, 2016.

The Ensemble rehearses in the Marian Room from 3:45 to 4:45 pm prior to Mass.

No regular commitment needed, come when you can! Instrumentalists of all kinds are also welcome!



This group of singers join together to sing at our funeral and memorial masses throughout the year as needed.

Practice is a half hour before Mass in the choir loft. No regular commitment needed.

Come whenever you can. Our vocalists have found this experience to be especially meaningful.



This group of singers provided music on Good Friday and some of the members came to help us sing at the Farewell Mass in June. Typically this group has two evening rehearsals prior to singing at mass.

This year we hope to hear the men sing more frequently throughout the year. Mark your calendars gentlemen to sing with our combined choir on Thanksgiving and at the Holy Name Mass in January!

All men of the parish 14 years and older are encouraged to give it a try!



Soon and VERY SOON the hand chimes are coming!!

A three octave set of hand held chimes will soon be part of our music ministry and we will need extra hands to help them ring!

All persons in 4th grade and up are welcome to attend any of our music groups and join in the fun! No experience necessary!

If you are thinking of joining any of our music groups, or have any questions, please call me at 708-447-5189, email me at TFWJW@SBCGLOBAL.NET or see me after any weekend Mass.
