Adult Choir

The adult choir sings at the 8:30 AM Mass weekly as well as all major Liturgical celebrations including Good Friday, Easter Vigil, Easter Sunday Morning and Christmas Midnight Mass. The role of the Adult Choir is to aid in the assembly’s participation with enthusiastic singing. At other time, the role of the Adult Choir is to add lyrical beauty and dignity to Worship. Rehearsals are Wednesday evening from 7:00-8:45 PM in the Church.

Youth Choir*

The youth choir is open to all students, grades 9 - 12.  They sing monthly on the third Sunday of each month at 5:00 PM Sunday Liturgy.   Rehearsals are held one hour before start of Liturgy.


At Christ the King, Cantors lead the congregational signing at those Liturgies where a choir is not present. Cantors need to have good vocal strength and quality. The ability to read music is helpful but not required. Cantors are especially needed to assist with the signing at funerals and weddings. The parish is always in need of more Cantors. Please consider this very important ministry.

Flute Choir

The CTK Flute Choir is open to any parishioner who plays the flute skillfully. The Flute Choir plays at the 8:30 AM Sunday Liturgy and all special Liturgies including Christmas, the Holy Week Liturgies/Services. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 - 8:45 PM in the Church.

Adult Instrumentalist

The Adult Instrumentalists are an exceptional group of fine musicians that happen to be parishioners of Christ the King Catholic Church. From their skilled musicianship to their enthusiastic playing, they add much to the assembly's participation. This adult ensemble plays at the 8:30 AM Sunday Liturgy and most major Liturgical Celebrations. Rehearsals are Wednesday evening at 7:00 - 8:45 PM in the Church. Every instrument can be a part of this ensemble.


Refuge Choir

Refuge includes a dedicated cadre of voices supported by additional instruments. Our goal is to encourage the congregation to "pray twice" by singing.    Our sound is a mix of contemporary, folk, and praise & worship flavors.  Participation in Refuge reflects a call to ministry and commitment to 3-4 hours every two weeks, with rehearsals and Sunday evening Mass every other week.
