Have you ever heard that to sing is to pray twice? If you love to sing, you are in good company. As a member of the St. John Fisher family you are provided many opportunities to sing and offer double praise to our God. Whether from the pews or with any of the musical ensembles, you are technically praying twice when you sing during Mass.
Do your children like to sing? Well, the St. John Fisher children’s choir or “Genesis Choir” would love to encourage your child’s love of God and music. It meets every Monday from 5:00-5:45 pm at the church (except on school holidays) in the fall and spring to prepare for our Christmas and Easter Masses. I would like to extend another invitation to the youth of this parish to join this year’s Christmas choir and experience the joy of singing in praise of our God. Children from kindergarten through high school are welcome this year. No experience necessary, just come ready to sing!
Parents and siblings are welcome to stay and enjoy our rehearsals. The songs we are learning are simple, yet beautiful, and I try to make it as easy as possible to learn with the help of online videos for supplemental practice at home. I hope your child will be able to join me, Janice Reska (pianist) and Alicia Tardiff (flutist), our talented accompanying musicians, for our next rehearsal on Monday, November 18th. Please contact me at (860) 304-6376 to sign up, or just show up on Monday!
