The cantor greets the congregation, announces the hymns, leads the congregation in song, proclaims the psalm and gospel acclamation verse, and sings solos on occasion. The role of the cantor is part leader, and part soloist, but never both at the same time! Cantors rehearse and are scheduled based on their availability.

Rehearsals: individually scheduled
Mass: Scheduled for 5:00 p.m., 8:30 a.m., Holy Days of Obligation, and Civic Holidays
