• Coming together to make one joyful voice.
  • Keeping our hearts open to Jesus.
  • Inspiring our parish family to praise the Lord in song.
  • Feeding the hungry, sad, and lonely through every prayerful note.

This choir is open to all children in the parish and is designed for children in 1st through 8th grades, who would like to share their beautiful voices to help inspire and lead our parish family in song from October through May.

Children's Choir Responsibilities Include:
  • 1st Sunday of every Month at 10:30 am Mass
  • 1st Mass on Christmas Eve
  • Easter Sunday at 10:30 am
  • All children, who have made their 1st Communion, are encouraged to make an examination of conscience and if necessary, seek out Reconciliation before ministering at any given Mass.
  • Call Time is a minimum of 30 minutes before Mass or Service.
  • Meet in the Bride's Room to get bow-ties, name tags, picture taken (if needed) or depositing your monthly Food Pantry Items collection before you go to the risers.

Make sure your children come to rehearsal covered appropriately! No tank-tops or shorts please!!! With or without Mass being celebrated, we are in the Lord's house.

  • Boys and Girls: Black Pants Only!
    (NO BLUE JEANS, capris, shorts, skorts, jeggings, low-risers, or skirts are allowed!)
  • Custom Choir Polo Shirt purchased at beginning of the year.

  • Clean and flat, black or brown closed toed shoes.
    (NO boots, sandals, open-toed or heeled shoes will be allowed on risers.)

Our choir does much more than encourage praise and worship through song. We ask our members to bring pantry food items with them on the 1st Sunday of the month to help keep our Church Pantry from becoming Old Mother Hubbard's Cupboard.

Items Needed (Single Serving Pop-tops): Soups, Tuna, Vienna Sausages, Juices, Peanut Butter, Nuts, Fruit, Crackers, Cereal, Bottled Water or the like.

During the month of December, we join a homeschooling project called, "Hugs for the Holidays" spear-headed by two former choir members. Our choir has been helping them collect beanie babies for the Jamieson Center, Kern Medical Center, The Bethany House, The Ronald McDonald House and our local needy children for the past eleven (11) years. Collection starts December 1st and ends on Dec. 22nd.

Items Needed: New Beanie Babies or small stuffed animal, attached with a Christmas ribbon and tag with the Family Name and your special message tied to it. For more information about "Hugs for Holidays," please email questions to mtddesigns7@gmail.com.
