Mission

The Most Pure Heart of Mary Schola Cantorum is a ministry of Most Pure Heart of Mary Catholic Church and parochial school in Topeka, Kansas.  The choir school is a music program for adults and children in the European cathedral tradition that promotes the musical and spiritual development of its members within the context of the Roman Catholic liturgy, forming Christians for the lifelong praise and worship of God.

Studies focus on:

  • The joy of communal music making, both for God and our parish family
  • Vocal training, sight-singing, ear-training and music theory
  • Formation of our future singers, organists and cantors
  • Formation in the celebration (ars celebrandi) of the Sacred Liturgy

The Schola Cantorum works to bring about the liturgical renewal envisioned by the bishops during the Second Vatican Council in its document The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy.
