Dear parents and children,
St. Edwin church is pleased to begin
a parish children’s choir. We are
blessed to have a professional choir
teacher with us, Molly W., who is
licensed to teach the K-12 grades. The
program has two levels of
Practices take place within the context
of the religious education program,
three Wednesdays each month, from at
5:30-6:00pm. For those in our
elementary or middle school program,
choir forms the last half hour of the
class. The children will be learning
liturgical hymns and Mass parts. St.
Augustine of Hippo once said, “The
one who sings prays twice.”
The children’s choir will sing monthly
at one of the weekend Masses. All
those who show up early enough to
rehearse may participate. Check down
below for our choir calendar, updates
and other information.
At 6:00pm (after the regular catechism
classes have ended), those who are
interested in being part of our
performance choir may remain to
receive an additional twenty minutes
of instruction. During this second half,
the students will be introduced to
various forms of popular music,
looking ahead to performning on our
big stage at festivals and other events.
Frankly, it is a fantastic opportunity
for children in a small parish. Those
imagining a musical career involving
singing will find a great first start right
here at their local church.
What about those who have
already received First Holy
Communion and are not in the
Religious Education program?
The short answer is, children not in
our religious education program may
absolutely participate! They arrive
specifically for the choir programa
little before 5:30pm, and stay through
6:20pm. They will be trained to sing at
the monthly Sunday Mass and perform
at our two parish festivals.
For more information, you can visit
the office or ask the pastor.
