"We sing at the 11:30 Mass, usually on the 4th Sunday of the month.

The aim of the Hymn Choir is to lead and encourage the congregation in the singing of the Mass. We sing well known hymns and the English Chant Mass, (this is the Mass that is in the Parish Mass Books that the Bishops wanted everybody to learn and use).

We also join with the Plainchant Choir to sing on Palm Sunday.

We are a small group of singers and will be very pleased for new members to join us. We do not hold practices, just come up to the gallery about 10 minutes before Mass starts. EVERYONE IS WELCOME."]]>

million. With the number of priests over the
age of 65 steadily increasing, so too will the
financial obligation to the Archdiocese.

His Church and His People.
