Adult Choir: This is a traditional choir for adults in the parish, singing in four-part harmony. Psalmody, hymn-singing, and anthems are explored, as are various vocal techniques and music reading. The Adult Choir ministers at the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Liturgy, as well as various Holy Days and Sacramental Liturgies.
