The Marquette University Liturgical Choir is a choral ensemble sponsored through the Office of Campus Ministry. This ensemble can be taken as a 1 credit or 0 credit course through the College of Communications, and as of Fall 2023, can also be taken for 1 Honors elective credit*. The choir’s mission is to serve the liturgy by promoting and enlivening the sung prayer of the assembly. The choir is devoted to the study, rehearsal, and singing of choral literature from all periods, styles, and cultures in the context of the Roman Catholic Liturgical tradition.
The Liturgical Choir provides music for the Sunday 6 p.m. Liturgies at the Church of the Gesu as well as all-university liturgies. Reflecting Marquette’s Jesuit identity, this choir embodies and exemplifies the four components of the university’s mission: that of faith, leadership, excellence, and service. In addition, the Liturgical Choir is a faith community: students support one another and grow in faith together.
Students may join by means of a simple vocal placement interview. We accept undergraduate and graduate students, regardless of their faith tradition.
The choir performs at two annual events: the December Advent Lessons and Carols Service and a Spring Concert in April. The Liturgical Choir also collaborates with other music ministers for Sunday liturgies on campus and participates in service projects throughout the year. All members go on retreat in the beginning of each semester to deepen their understanding of their ministry, form friendships, pray with one another, and simply have fun in a relaxed and beautiful setting.
Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the Chapel of the Holy Family. Rehearsals are mandatory for participation in the group.
