The Adult Choir is open to anyone of high school age and older. The Choir provides the music ministry for the 10:00am Mass on Sunday and the vigil Mass for each holy day. The choir also provides special music before the midnight Mass at Christmas as well as special music on other important days during the year.
From mid-August until mid-June, the choir practices each Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the church. Musical training is appreciated but certainly not required. All you need to serve is this special ministry is a love for serving the Lord with the gift of music.
