Music Ministry

Our mission is to serve our parish community by providing the best music possible, enhancing our prayer, and giving glory to God our Creator. We seek to provide music that is appropriate for Catholic liturgy, engaging our assembly in full and active participation in responses, acclamations and inspired songs. To us, each rehearsal and Mass is an opportunity to serve Christ by serving the people of St. Joachim. With God's help, and the prayers of this community, we hope that our ministry will strengthen the faith of all who enter St. Joachim Church.

Morning Choir:

This group consists of a full SATB vocal choir accompanied by guitar, piano, bass and violin. The repertoire is a healthy combination of traditional and contemporary Catholic music. This group rehearses every Tuesday evening from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM and again 1 hour before mass each week.


Evening Youth Choir:

Using the latest music from Catholic youth ministry repertoire as well as some retro-fitted traditional Catholic music, this choir brings a youthful vitality to the Mass. It is similar to the morning choral group in terms of voice and instruments, but with more percussion/rhythm. This group rehearses from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM every Tuesday evening and again 1 hour before mass each week.


St. Joachim Student Choir:

Although this choir is primarily made up of students from St Joachim's school, all children grades 4-8 are welcome to participate. Rehearsals take place in the weeks prior to each Student Choir mass which happens about every 6 weeks. Students currently sing at the following 10 AM Masses: Catechetical Sunday, All Saints Day, Christmas Eve, Catholic Schools week, Second Sunday of Lent, and the Fourth Sunday of Easter.

Bi-lingual Choir:


Over the course of each liturgical year musicians from Spanish and English Speaking communities gather to help us all celebrate some of the best bi-lingual masses anywhere! Thanksgiving Day, Holy Thursday, Easter Vigil and the annual Confirmation mass are among the liturgies celebrated in both languages.

Special Occasions: Weddings/Quinceañeras/Anniversaries etc.

Let us help you make your special occasion even more memorable by enhancing it with music! While most occasions make use of an accompanist (Piano/Organ/Guitar) and a Cantor, we can put together many different ensembles to mark your big day. Contact Andrew Everson at: 949-574-7400 X413 or
