Rejoice in hope, 

endure in affliction,

persevere in prayer.

St. Emily's parish has started a TEEN CHOIR! It has been going very well. If your child is in 7th grade or above they may join the TEEN CHOIR. Currently they sing once a month at a 5pm Mass with one practice during the week that they sing. It is not a huge commitment but one that seems to work out with busy teenagers. Please contact Mary Caldrone at [email protected] to join this new choir!
