Parish Giving


We want our songs of praise, glory, and gratitude to inspire you just as much as they inspire us. We enjoy a special closeness to our Lord through the songs we sing, and hope that the wondrous emotions we feel touch your hearts and souls, as well. What you see and hear of the choir at Mass is only a small part of who we are – come and sing with us at the 11:00 Mass to get the full effect! ~ The Adult Choir
