This choir serves at Mass once a month, rehearsing on the Wednesday evening prior to their scheduled Mass from 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm. It is open to women who can carry a tune and wish to lead the congregation in sung prayer using the beauty of the female voice. Though the group does sing in parts, the ability to read music is not required. New members are always welcome!

Do I have to be able to read music?
No. Although the ability to read music is helpful for joining any of our ensembles, it is not a requirement. Several current members are unable to read music, but they learn by ear. We will teach you some basic music reading skills.
