“The musical tradition of the universal Church is a treasure of inestimable value, greater even than that of any other art. The main reason for the preeminence is that, as sacred song closely bound to the text, it forms a necessary or integral part of the solemn liturgy.” [CSL, #112]

The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings in the Choir Loft of the church from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. High School students are welcome to join the Adult Choir. The Adult Choir sings most every Sunday at the 11:00 a.m. Mass, singing a wide selection of hymns, SATB choir anthems, and chant.
