Singing is praying, and there are many ways you can use your singing talents at St. Marys. There are three choirs, the “Adult Choir”, the Family Choir, and the Resurrection Choir.
- Adult Choir: This choir sings for the 9:00 mass on the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th (if there is a 5th) Sundays of the month. Practice is on Thursdays at 7:00 pm. This choir sings 2, 3, and 4 part music to enhance congregational singing. Adult choir “season” is from Labor Day through annual church picnic. New members welcome!
- Family Choir: This choir sings the 2nd Sunday of the month. Anyone and everyone are welcome to sing! Families, individuals; anyone who would like to sing with a group. This is unison singing, and practice is at 8:20 prior to mass.
