“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]
St. Catherine of Siena Parish Music Ministry has the following choirs:
- Children’s Choir – For all children in grades 3 to 8.
- Adult Choir
The Children’s Choir rehearses on Thursday afternoons from 2:30 to 3:30 in the school cafeteria. The Children’s Choir is for children who have made First Communion through Grade 8, rehearses most Thursdays and sings in church 1-2 Sundays a month.
The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings in the Choir Loft of the church from 7 p.m. to 8 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. In addition, the Adult Choir is a great way to meet people and make friends within your parish community; we have social gatherings and refreshments after choir on a regular basis. If it’s been a while since you’ve sung with a choir, or you’ve never sung with a choir before, please come talk to Joe after any Mass, give him a call at the Rectory (781-762-6080 x126 or email musicdirector (at) stcatherinenorwood.com. We have a great Music Program here at St. Catherine’s, and we welcome all to become involved by joining a choir!
