The Cathedral community shares a rich liturgical life, with well over 200 liturgies every year which require music. The music of our liturgy is our choir's first and most spiritual priority. We are dedicated to grafting, through our liturgical music, our spirits and lives to one another in Christ. The choir provides music for Holy Eucharist each Sunday at the 8am and 10:30am services.

The Director of Music is currently auditioning for volunteer singers. Please contact Michael Boney at 303-577-7721 or at michael@sjcathedral.org.
