Our choir participated in the Combined Choirs Concert in St. Michaels. Our choir performed two carols, “All is Well”, a contemporary Christmas piece, and “Wake From Your Sleep”, in the style and flavor of a medieval carol. Be sure to attend this spirited concert next December! It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the Birth of Jesus!



Christian Contemporary Music Ensemble

Organized by Krys Kozinski-Sansing with the help of Mary Jane Meintzer in the Winter of 2005, the parish’s contemporary music group was originally called, ‘Teen CME’. Parish youth, ages 13 to 18, have been the heart of this ensemble for many years. Due to recent adult interest, CME now welcomes singers and musicians of all ages.

You may contact Magda Kellum at magdakellum@yahoo.com

Bilingual Services

The Parish Adult Choir and Hispanic Music Ministry Group join voices during Holy Week and for special celebrations as they arise. We truly enjoy singing together and appreciate each other for the musical gifts each one of us has to bring to liturgy. What a blessing it is to be able to sing God's praises together!

Parish Cantors

'Cantor' is from the word cantare (to sing), but the Hebrew word is 'hazzan' which requires the person to have great faith.

Being a cantor involves much more than standing up and singing alone. It involves making the assembly's prayer possible through song. It is important, however, that cantors have a good ear for music, and a basic knowledge of music in general.

​Cantors and musicians alike attend scheduled meetings between the months of September and June to review music for upcoming Masses.

Would you consider becoming a cantor at Saints Peter & Paul? Contact Krys Kozinski-Sansing at (410) 822-2344, ext. 8, or kkozinski@ssppeaston.org
