Music, Music, Music: 

The blog has almost every song that we'll be singing now through Easter. 

The Adult Choir page has been - for the time being - reorganized. Rather than alphabetical order, the songs are listed by mass in chronological order (for example, Holy Thursday songs, Good Friday songs, etc). 

You can also check the Mass Music List page for regular mass music (non-choir pieces).

Schedule Reminders:

  • Monday, April 10th: Final Holy Week Rehearsal at 7:00 in church 
  • Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil: 6:45 warm-up, 7:30 service each day
  • Easter Day: 10:20 warm-up, 10:45 mass 
  • Wednesday, April 19th: No rehearsal! You deserve a night off!!! 
  • Regular Sunday Mass on April 23rd: 10:15 warm-up, 10:45 mass 
  • Wednesday, April 26th: Rehearsal for Confirmation (mostly) with teens at 7:00 
  • Confirmation: April 30th at 3:00 (The choir will NOT sing at morning mass.)
