ADULT CHOIR



















Adult choir can change your life. Become a part of this fantastic family. The adult choir accepts teens also!



RESURRECTION CHOIR



















Members of the resurrection choir come together for parish funerals, supporting and comforting the bereaved through the gift of song.  Many members are retired and therefore available for funerals which are usually in the morning.  New members are always welcome; this choir generally does not rehearse but we may occasionally get together to learn a new piece.  We ask that you try and assemble 15 minutes before the funeral so that we can be organized and fully prepared.



TEEN CHOIR


We are always looking for more members, and are hoping that the Sunday practice schedule will encourage more teens to join us!



YOUTH CHOIR


KEEP THEIR  TENDER HEARTS CLOSE TO JESUS WITH YOUTH CHOIR,  FALL, 2018!!!

If your child loves to sing and can read well (for instance, can follow lyrics in the hymnal during Mass, no younger than 2nd grade), then please consider the youth choir of St. Columba Parish.  IT IS AN EXCELLENT WAY TO EDUCATE THE CHILDREN IN THE PARTS AND MEANING OF THE MASS, THE ROLE OF MINISTRY, AND GROUND THEM IN PARTICIPATION IN THE MUSICAL REPERTOIRE OF THE CHURCH.  PLUS WE HAVE FUN!!!!!!  Children’s choir rehearses once a month (exception: 2 practices for Christmas  Eve) from September through May, and sings once a month, usually at the 8AM liturgy.  It is a wonderful opportunity for the kids to become involved with the liturgy.  We rehearse from 4-5:15 in the St. Cecilia practice room on the first floor of the parish center.  Questions?  Contact Cathy Chayko in the parish office or Deanna McKinnon in the school.   

Youth choir practices for the fall are as follows:

 

Sept. 14, 4-5:15 for Sept. 16, 8am Mass

Oct. 12, 4-5:15  for Oct. 14, 8am Mass                     

Nov. 16,  4-5:15 for  Nov. 18,  8am Mass

Dec. 14 and 21, 4-5:15  (both mandatory) for Christmas Eve, Dec. 24,  6:30 pm Mass



INSTRUMENTAL ENSEMBLE




. . .rehearses Tuesday evenings from 6PM to 6:45.  This ensemble is an audition-only group always looking for a few more members, especially woodwinds or strings.  If you are a good sight-reader and would like to audition for this group, please call the parish office.  I would be happy to meet with you!
