Cantors assist and help lead the assembly in singing the various musical parts of the Mass. As psalmists, they prepare the sung proclamation of the psalms. There is some proficiency required musically to carry out this ministry and is at the discretion of the music director. Cantors are scheduled to sing for the various Masses, and occasionally requested to sing for weddings and funerals. Preparation involves coordinating rehearsals with the music director and occasional meetings as a group.
