Adult Choirs

We have two fantastic adult choirs, one for the 9:15 service and one for the 11:15 service. Consider joining one of them.

Regular Weekday Rehearsals

9:15 & 11:15 Adult Choirs: Thursdays, 7:00-9:00p, with a 10-15 minute break for socializing.

Followed by Sung Compline (optional), which many members have come to appreciate as a prayerful end to their day.

We understand that one's life can be full of many activities and obligations. Weekly rehearsals allow everyone to attend as often as possible, and minimize the impact of absences. Choir members are encouraged to try to limit their absences to one per month.

See the current Choir Calendar.

Special Choral Events

The Adult Choirs prepare major works for several liturgical events throughout the season, including

  • Haïti Sunday (Sep 23) 
  • Classical mass for All Saints’ Sunday (Nov 4)
  • Christmas Eve
  • Jazz mass for Carnival Sunday (Mar 3)
  • Ash Wednesday (Mar 6)
  • Holy Week and Easter (Apr 18-21)
