The Parish Choir

The Parish Choir sings at the Sunday 9:00 a.m. Mass (Rite II) from late September through Trinity Sunday. We also sing occasional Sunday Evensong services. Our repertoire is diverse and includes choral works of major composers from the 16th through the 20th centuries. Rehearsals during the season are usually Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
