These talented and giving people have led us in prayer at the 9:30am Mass all year long, including special events in the parish as well. We thank them and want them to know we appreciate the gift of themselves that they have shared with all of us.! !

We invite you over the summer months to give serious consideration to joining the choir next year when we resume “singing joyfully in praise of God” at the 9:30am Liturgy next fall. Watch the bulletin for further information.
