The Parish Choir
Frank K.J. Orman, Director
The Parish Choir sings for all principal liturgies of the parish, including the 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Sunday Masses on alternating weeks, the Christmas Eve Candlelight Concert, the Sacred Triduum, Holydays, Feasts, and special celebrations of Solemn Evening Prayer. The choir serves faithfully as worship leaders and is committed to deepening the prayer life of the assembly through the art of choral singing. This group of diverse parishioners numbers about twenty-five and rehearses each Wednesday evening beginning at 7:00 p.m. The musical abilities within the group range from the beginning singer to the professional. The Parish Choir sings a varied repertoire, ranging from ancient chant to more contemporary choral compositions. A simple audition to assure the ability to match pitch is required.
The Children’s & Youth Choir Grades 1 — 8
The Children’s & Youth Choirs return for its eleventh season of singing. Students of the parish in first through eighth grade are welcome to join this ensemble. Rehearsals will occur again this year on Sunday Mornings, immediately following the 9:30 a.m. Mass. In an effort to build a stronger group and have the children serve as effective leaders of worship, the choir will now sing twice per month on the first and third Sundays at the 9:30 a.m. Mass.
