Participating in a children’s choir provides an excellent opportunity for children to find a place in the church where they can develop self-expression, leadership qualities, self-discipline, and group disciplines. At the same time, they will enjoy the positive atmosphere of fellowship through liturgical music.

Angel Choir

Pre-k 4 – Grade 2 – Wednesdays from 5-5:30 p.m. 
We may be born with talent, but we have to learn to use it. The Angel Choir sings the 2nd Saturday of each month for the Family Mass with the older Children’s Choirs and also sings for Christmas and Easter Masses. Music for this group comprises both fun and serious songs. We will introduce some songs sung at Mass, as well as some just for enjoyment. Rehearsals are in the Music Room.

This beginning choir:

  • allows children to explore the use of their voices through the singing of brief religious songs with small range melodies and simple rhythms.
  •  will begin to teach children to read basic music notation and will encourage proper singing posture development.
  •  will teach children about Mass participation while encouraging the spiritual development of these young parishioners.
