IT’S TIME TO JOIN THE ADULT CHOIR!
The Adult Choir is just starting up again after the Summer break and we will soon be in the midst of preparing music for Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas along with the weekly Sunday Mass music. This is the perfect time for anyone who has been thinking about joining the choir to get in gear and do so. Singing God’s praises can be a wonderful experience for both the choir member and congregation. We’re made up of people of all ages and are always ready to welcome new members into our choir family.
While musical training and experience are helpful, the desire to sing is paramount. Rehearsals are usually Thursday evenings from 8:00 to 9:30 PM, with a short warm up period on Sunday mornings before the 10:30 AM Mass.
There are many of you out there with great voices and we need you!
Please consider joining us. For more information see Joseph Cangialosi in the Choir Loft after any of the Masses or call the Rectory at 747-3535.
THE CONTEMPORARY MUSIC MINISTRY
The Contemporary Music Ministry is also looking for new singers and instrumentalists to play at the 10:00 AM Mass in the Auditorium, Being a member of the Contemporary Music Ministry is a wonderful way to share the talents God has given you. Students who volunteer may apply for experience toward any Community Service requirements they might need to fulfill, 7th and 8th graders who join would be able to receive 5 hours service credit for Confirmation.
Any singers from early grades through adult who love to sing are invited to sit in at rehearsals to experience the warm and friendly atmosphere and see if this is something you would like to participate in. We enjoy working together and would love to add new singers to our group. The group is also in need of instrument players. Instrument players must be able to sight read music. Rehearsals are held immediately following the 10:00 AM Mass until 11:45 AM.
If you have any interest or know someone else who does please leave a message for Jim Tornatore in the Rectory 747-3535 or just stop by and chat after the 10:00 AM Mass.
