Music Ministry

Ensembles

St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish offers a comprehensive music ministry program for the parish including choirs covering Kindergarten through Adult. “Those who sing pray twice” is a guiding philosophy for the Vatican II parish music ministry program. Whether you sing from your pew or sing from the choir chairs, all are involved in the great gift of song.

 

The Organ

The organ of Immaculate Conception was built by the Austin Organ company in 1916. Restorations in recent years and during its Centennial Celebration have included a new console for the organ, placed in the Chancel, as well as the addition of a Chancel Division; built by the Peragallo Organ company for the now closed Church of the Assumption, Bayonne, NJ.

The main gallery organ contains 34 ranks and some 2,016 pipes.  The new Chancel Organ contains some 730 pipes.  For a stop-list of the organ, please click here.  All of the restoration work has carefully been completed by the Peragallo Organ Company of Paterson over the past 20 years.  Donations are always accepted towards the ongoing care of this historic musical instrument.
