About Festival Choir

Our parish invites those who love to sing but cannot commit to singing year round to join our Festival Choir for Christmas and Easter. The festival choir joins our regular adult choir to sing on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday. There are short rehearsals leading up to the holiday Mass, usually held on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm. All adults, high school students and voice parts are welcome. Note: In 2017, a festival choir is being formed for the 50th Anniversary Mass on September 10, too!
