CHILDREN & YOUTH CHOIRS TO

BEGIN REHEARSALS

Wednesday, September 7


Did your child enjoy the plays this summer?

Would they like more singing at St. Thomas?


Well, we have two choirs that meet during the school year on Wednesdays and Sundays. The younger group, in grades K-3rd, meets on Wednesdays from 3:00-3:45 and sings in church on Sundays about once a month. The older group, 4th grade and up, rehearse on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:30 and sing in church most Sunday mornings. We follow a curriculum that teaches singers how to be great musicians, and singing on Sundays will teach them liturgical leadership.


Let Joel Bejot know if you are interested!
