New Month = New Time!

This Sunday we will meet in church at 10:15 to warm up for the 10:45 mass.

Dates to Remember:

We will sing for the Saturday evening mass on October 21st. See the sign up sheet to let Mark know that you will be there and if you would like to get together afterward.  

Set aside Thursday, November 2nd for the All Souls Day Mass, so we can have as many choir members there as possible.

Practice Links:

The Adult Choir and Mass Music List pages are up-to-date with links for this Sunday and future services. 
The Adult Choir page has a link to a YouTube video of the London Symphony Orchestra singing For Unto Us a Child is Born from Handel's Messiah. We tried just a bit of it at practice, so check out the video to hear the whole piece. 


If you will ever miss a rehearsal or mass, let Mark know either by using the sign out sheet or by email so he can plan accordingly.

Cantors, please continue to sign up when you can so all the masses are covered. Thanks.

Remember that we will meet IN CHURCH to warm up before the 9am mass.

The Adult Choir page has been updated with the music we worked on during practice. There are also links for this weekend: Rain Down, Tune My Heart, as well as the Communion Antiphon. Go to the Mass Music List page to see the rest of the music we will sing this weekend.

Choir season begins again on Sunday, September 10th at the 9am mass!

The entire schedule for the season is on the Choir Schedule page. To save the dates to your Google Calendar, go to the lower right-hand corner of the calendar and click on: 

(If you use the calendar app on an iPhone or iPad, you can save the calendar there. If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll send instructions.)
Testing Contact Forms

On the right side of the blog, you will notice there are currently two Contact Forms: the original, ad-free form (top) and the newer form with ads (below). 

I want to test the ad-free form (which had been replaced after it began to get glitchy). I don't like the ads that run with the newer Contact Form, so I would like to take it down, but only if we can rely on the ad-free one. 

For the time-being, I'm leaving both forms up as a back up in case the ad-free version is still having problems. Try the ad-free version and if you don't get a response, please use the one with ads. If there are no problems, then we can go back to a blog with no advertisements. Thank you for your patience as I work this out.

The Mass Music page has been updated with practice links through September 10th.

Cantors, please check the sign-up page and sign up where you can. Thanks!
