Children in Music Ministry
Singing with Adults
Children are invited to join any of our regular choirs. Children under 13 must be accompanied by adult or driving-age sibling.
Children’s Christmas Carol Chorus
A new annual tradition for our parish. Meets on Sundays in December and sings at the Children’s Mass on Christmas Eve.
Faith Formation Choirs
Singing and music ministry is part of faith formation curriculum. At some point during the school year every student enrolled in the parish faith formation program will sing in a liturgical choir at Sunday Mass. Rehearsals take place during the regularly scheduled faith formation class.
