Would Your Child Like to Join Our Children’s Choir?
Your child is most welcome to join the Music Ministry here at St. Alphonsus Parish and Blessed Francis Seelos Academy for the 2017-2018 school year. We love having children grow their faith through music!
We welcome any child in Grades 1-8 to join our Children’s Choir to sing for Sunday liturgies and school Masses.
Our St. Alphonsus CCD students are invited to Sunday practices at 10:30 a.m. The first practice will be on Sunday, Sept. 24. Seelos Academy students — parishioners and non-parishioners — practice on Thursday mornings at 8 a.m. in the school’s music room. The first practice will be Thursday, Aug. 31.
We already have four events and liturgies scheduled for the Children’s Choir:
Sunday, Oct. 29: We celebrate All Saints Day at the 9:30 a.m. Sunday Liturgy. Children are encouraged to sing and/or dress up as their favorite saint.
Sunday, Nov. 26: Feast of Christ the King! We combine children, adults, handbells and instruments for the 9:30 a.m. Mass to celebrate this wonderful feast that ends our Liturgical Year.
Friday, Dec. 1: Our Annual Advent Lessons and Carols. We enter into Advent with this beautiful prayer service at 7:30 p.m. at St. Alphonsus. For the second year, we will be joined by Perry Highway Lutheran Church in this musical event that features children and adults, handbells and other instruments.
Sunday, Dec. 24: The Children’s Choir sings a 20-minute program before the 4 p.m. Mass and then sings for the Mass itself. All music will be practiced at regular Children’s Choir practices; two extra practices might be scheduled in December.
