Music Ministry >> Choirs for Children and Youth
This year St. Mary's is again very excited to have children's choir and a youth choir for different age groups. The growth of this program is yet another testament that the Spirit is alive in St. Mary's!

The children's choir  asks that parents volunteer to help at the scheduled masses, and at any other Music Ministry events. We are in need of parents to help keep the choirs quiet and well organized during Mass. Please see the director for the sign up sheet. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Ministry office. The goals of the St. Mary's children's choirs are to enable its members to:

Express themselves, and their faith through choral music Develop vocal skills, auditory perception, sight reading ,and age appropriate training of the voice .Develop an appreciation for contemporary, classical, traditional Christian music, as well as a confidence and love for music and singing. Understand the importance of their individual contribution to a group Participate in an organization which reinforces and teaches Christian values
