Looking for the Bell Choir?  Please go to:


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


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.


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


If your child loves to sing and can read well (for instance, can follow lyrics in the Breaking Bread Missal, usually about 1st or 2nd grade), then please consider the youth choir of St. Columba Parish. We have some teenage members of this choir as well as younger kids.  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! Youth 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 - 5:30 in the St. Cecilia practice room on the first floor of the parish center.  Questions?  Call Cathy in the parish office.

Youth choir practices for the fall are as follows:

September 15, 4-5:30 for Sept 17, 8:00 a.m. Mass

October 20, 4-5:30  for Oct 22, 8:00 a.m. Mass

November 17, 4-5:30 for  Nov 19, 8:00 a.m. .  Mass

December 15 and 22, 4-5:30 for Christmas Eve Mass, 6:30 p.m.


. . .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!
