Christian Voices

Christian Voices

This liturgical choir is founded upon the principles of the Second Vatican Council. Its primary function is to minister to the King's Community at the Sunday Eucharist.

The choir is comprised of King's students from freshmen to seniors, and a variety of faith traditions.

Primarily ministering at the 8p.m. Sunday liturgy, this choir performs music from traditional chant to music by contemporary composers such as David Haas, Marty Haugen, John Foley, and others.

The foundation of Christian Voices is its dedication to ministry. Members of Christian Voices see each other as ministers serving the assembly gathered as the Body of Christ. Understanding ourselves as ministers and not simply performers, helps us to better serve the community through sung prayer. Singing is praying twice according to St. Augustine, when we sing in praise to Christ it gives us a joy and an experience that is truly transformative.

Members of the choir rehearse weekly for 90 minutes, primarily on Sundays from 6:16 p.m. to 7:30p.m., then performs its ministry at the 8p.m. liturgy.

The King's College Festival Choir prepares for the Annual Baccalaureate Liturgy. This choir, which is comprised of Faculty, Staff and Students, comes together a few times a year to minister at major liturgies.
