The Faithful Band is a group of vocalists and instrumentalists who lead the congregation of St. John's in song at Sunday liturgies and other special events. New members need either vocal or instrumental musical skills (preferably both). They should feel comfortable working in a largely unstructured environment where each individual contributes ideas to arrive at arrangements for songs.
The Band practices for two to three hours each Thursday evening and plays at the Sunday 9:30 Mass during the non-summer months (September - June). Time commitment for members is about four hours per week.
Practice and Masses are mostly at St. John's Church. The Band plays at a variable number of events at other locations throughout the year.
