Angels and Saints Choir

 

General Program Information


•    The Angels and Saints Choir serves the 9 AM Sunday Mass.

•    We rehearse Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM from September through May, and before Mass at 8:10 AM, in the choir loft.

Our Choir Culture

The Angels and Saints Choir is a traditional church choir. We concentrate on contributing transcendental beauty to the Mass through masterwork choral music from many time periods and places, in accordance with Bishops’ recommendations. The role of cueing the congregation on songs and adding harmony and descants continues but not as the overriding focus. 

Choir rehearsal is worship. We hear the Word; we offer our intercessions; we have closing prayers led by our members; by singing together, we pray twice.

No Stone Unturned

We will do everything possible to facilitate your participation; this is a promise. If child care is needed for you to attend rehearsal, we will work on it. Contact the director with issues or concerns.

An Exciting Time to Make a Difference

Choirs have personalities. They like some music better than others; they laugh at different things; they support one another in so many ways. I need your help to pave the path for the choir ministry,  to help choose its favorite anthems, to create our identity in the service of our Corpus Christi community, under Fr. Brian’s leadership. Come, join, and make a tangible difference!
