2010-2011 Liturgical Choir Council:

Katie Reiss (President)
Class: Senior
Major: Bio-Mechanical Engineering
Section: Soprano

“Throughout my years at Marquette and all the activities I have been involved in, Liturgical Choir remains the one where I’ve felt most at home. I value the family I can count on in this group. Even though it is constantly changing (adding new members while old ones graduate) I have always felt welcome. I believe it is the common goal we have of providing prayerful music to the Marquette community and beyond that allows us to connect in this way.”

Allie Wolf (Vice President)
Class: Junior
Major: Biomedical Sciences/Pre-Med
Section: Alto

“Liturgical Choir practice is the ultimate getaway. It is a community and place where I can forget my schoolwork and focus on God. Choir has given me a sanctuary to enjoy the gift of music, work as a team player, and praise the Lord. I look forward to giving back to Liturgical Choir what it has given me as a member of the council.”

Emily Shakleton (Secretary)
Class: Senior
Major: Secondary Education and English
Section: Soprano

“It is difficult to sum up what Liturgical Choir has done for me in just a few lines; I have been deeply affected and connected by it for my three years at Marquette. The choir has been a solid foundation for me since the start of my freshman year. I have been involved in many activities and jobs on campus, but have stayed committed to nothing as long as this choir. Liturgical Choir provides service opportunities, challenging repertoire, retreats to bond with other members, and a chance every time we meet to grow my faith in an encouraging environment where I feel I can be myself. This is a group that truly praises God with their hearts and their lips!”

Greg Deye (Treasurer)
Class: Sophomore
Major: Chemistry/Pre-Med
Section: Bass

“When I first came to Marquette, I had a hard time adjusting to the hectic college life. I didn't know many people and I felt like I couldn't be myself. Liturgical Choir is where I found my place at Marquette. It really is like a family that's always there.”

Ali Schoon (Retreat Chair)
Class: Junior
Major: Biomedical Sciences
Section: Soprano

“Liturgical Choir has given me the opportunity to combine my love of God with my love of music. Singing at Mass with the rest of the Marquette community has strengthened my faith. Liturgical Choir contains a wonderful group of people and I feel like I have found a family away from home. We also have a lot of fun during practice, Mass, and service projects.”

Sarah Gallas (Service Chair)
Class: Sophomore
Major: English / Secondary Education
Section: Alto

“Liturgical Choir is my flashback to Church choir from elementary school. The most important part is singing for service and making a family from the choir.”

Mark Hampton (Co-Social Chair)
Class: Sophomore
Major: Business Finance
Section: Bass

“My family has a special quote, ‘He who sings, prays twice’. Liturgical choir is a way for me to become closer to God in my faith. The faith family I have through choir is unlike any I have ever been involved with and singing at mass brings great joy to me knowing that I am helping to increase other’s experience in growing closer to God as I am doing the same.”

Maggie Kreutter (Co-Social Chair)
Class: Sophomore
Major: Biomedical Sciences
Section: Alto

“Liturgical Choir is a group that gave me a sense of belonging to the Marquette Community. Everyone involved is passionate about both the music and worship aspects and that is a rare and beautiful combination for college students. Spending time singing with amazing people every week is an awesome break from the daily stresses and something to consistently look forward to.”

Rachael Taylor (Section Leader Liaison)
Class: Sophomore
Major: Biomedical Sciences
Section: Alto

“I've heard so many people say that Liturgical Choir is like a family, a home away from home. And while I agree that it sounds really cheesy, I actually agree with it, 100%. Being in Liturgical Choir means more to me than singing in Mass on Sundays or for our concerts, it means more than leading the congregation in a beautiful worship experience. To me, it means showing our love for one another, and most importantly for our Lord, in using the voices He alone has given us to praise Him.”

Maggie Kollar (Historian)
Class: Sophomore
Major: English and Secondary Education
Section: Soprano

“Liturgical Choir is one of my favorite parts of Marquette University. It is where I am able to use my gift of music to praise God, and to help others do the same. We get to sing beautiful music and raise our voices to God and change many people's experience of the Sunday mass. Lit Choir is also where I have made my closest friends. The entire choir is more of a family to me than any other group on campus, and I can't imagine what my life would be like if I hadn't joined.”
