I must say that I have been hearing some really good singing at Mass, especially as of late. It's high time we have some of those really good voices upstairs in the choir. YES, we are looking to re-form a parish choir! For the starting weeks, we will be rehearsing at roughly 10 AM on Sundays (shortly after the end of the 9 AM Mass) so we can sing the 11:15 AM Mass. As we grow (and hopefully we will), I may consider adding a weeknight. Let us sing to the Lord, for glorious is his triumph! (Exodus 15: 1)
Please see me, Brian Page, after Mass.
