Middle School Choir

The choir for our Friday Masses is composed of our middle school students. Students are encouraged to bring their talents with them to Mass. Church-friendly instruments are a welcome addition to the music accompaniment. We have two different choirs that rotate Masses. When one choir is practicing for mass, the other will be learning specific music curriculum.
