Thursday Evenings, 7:30-8:30 pm:  Adult Choir Rehearsal

Do you like to sing?  We have a new time!  Our choir holds rehearsals during the school year on Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm – 8:45 pm with Organist Lyle Hamel leading us through the pieces we are going to sing during the coming weeks (no need to read music).

The choir rehearses briefly on Sunday at 9 am before singing at the 9:30 am Sunday Mass.  The choir also sings at other significant liturgical Masses, Feast Days and Holy Days. Rehearsals are held in the choir loft during fall and spring and in the Chapel during the colder winter months.
