VOICES OF GRACE choir news!
VOICES OF GRACE 2017-2018 off to a great year!
2017-2018 VOICES OF GRACE SEASON begins in September!
Because we want to make a space to sing for everyone who wishes to join our parish choir, the VOICES of GRACE we have formed TWO separate choirs, aptly named the SAINT FRANCIS and the SAINT CLARE choirs.
Here’s how these two ensembles will work:
Starting Thursday, Sept. 7 and continuing each Thursday, the Saint FRANCIS choir will rehearse in the parish center. The FRANCIS choir will sing predominantly from the choir loft, and will rotate their appearance, between all three weekend masses during the fall and holiday season, so that all in our parish will experience having a choir for mass. This choir requires a weekly commitment to a Thursday night rehearsal.
The Saint CLARE choir will begin singing masses on Saturday, September 9, and will rotate mass times as well. The CLARE choir will rehearse 45 minutes before the start of each mass to be sung. The CLARE choir will sing from downstairs, and will be ideal for those who dislike climbing stairs, or for those whose schedule does not allow for a rehearsal during a weekday evening. Members of the CLARE choir can come and go freely from week to week. Anyone who would like to participate on any given day can simply show up at the appointed rehearsal time, rehearse with us, and sing at the mass that follows.
Both choirs will continue to service the parish with both traditional and contemporary musical styles, and instruments, while continuing to “grow” our music ministry even further. And, as always, any age or ability is welcome! There is no audition process…only the desire to sing!
If you are interested in joining one of our fine choirs, please plan on joining us at one of the above times, or call
