Adults: If you love to sing, now is the time to join our wonderful adult choir. You do not need to know how to read music to enjoy singing in our MBVM Adult Choir. This group rehearses together on Wednesday nights, and generally sings at either the 9 or 11 o’clock liturgy on Sunday and once a month at 4:30 Saturday. We have a wonderful “choir community” at Maternity BVM. Please consider joining us!

First Rehearsal is Wednesday, Sept. 5, 6:30 – 8:00pm.

 

Adults with flexible schedules, consider singing with our Resurrection Funeral Choir. Rehearsal is 30 minutes prior to the funeral, which is generally at 10 or 11 o’clock. This is an important ministry that offers consolation to our families during funerals.

 

Did you play an instrument in band or orchestra in High School? Or College? Consider sharing your talent with our parish for Weekend Liturgies. Instrumentalists add great beauty to our prayer and give you a wonderful opportunity to continue playing.

Rehearsal is 30 minutes prior to the Liturgy that works in your schedule
