A Message from Our Director of Music/Organist

Have you been thinking about joining the Adult Choir, but didn’t want to join in the middle of the season? Fear not! Now that Christmas Day has passed, now is the perfect time to join up with us! We are beginning to prepare for January and the coming season of Lent. We welcome all voice types, and are very much in need of more men to fill out our tenor and bass sections. Ability to read music is NOT required (but is a plus!). NO AUDITION NEEDED! Questions? Contact Nick Gatto at 732-257-7722 x38 or at


The mission of the Saint Bartholomew Adult Choir is to proclaim our Catholic faith through music and inspire, enrich, and foster participation of the St. Bartholomew community in our Sunday Liturgies through chant, hymns, and sacred songs.


The Adult Choir is open to anyone from high school freshman through adult. Ability to read music is a plus but is not required.


The repertoire of the Adult Choir spans the many centuries of the life of the church and includes chant, hymnody, and sacred music from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic era, as well as contemporary choral works.

Rehearsal & Liturgy Schedule

The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7:30pm in the church, starting the first Thursday after Labor Day and continuing until around early June (depending on how the calendar falls).


The Adult Choir sings at:

  • The 12 Noon Mass every Sunday from October until early June
  • Confirmation Masses
  • Christmas Eve Lessons and Carols/Midnight Mass
  • The liturgies of the Sacred Triduum (Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper, Good Friday Service of the Lord’s Passion, and Great Easter Vigil)
  • Other special liturgical celebrations throughout the year
