The Joyful Heart Choir is as the name suggests a joyful group of singers and instrumentalists! This group is for adults, ages 18 and up who wish to lead the faithful community in music and worship and to enhance our liturgical celebrations. Members of this ministry rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. We share our gifts 3 times a month at the 9am mass and once a month at the 4pm mass and other special liturgies throughout the year.
The Youth Choir is for children and teens, grades 2 to 12 who have a love of music and enjoy sharing their gifts with the church and each other. It is a great opportunity to make new friends and learn about the Mass and our Lord in a relaxed and fun environment. The Youth Choir rehearses just twice a month on Sunday’s from 10:15-11:30am and sings once a month rotating between the 9am and 7pm masses.
The Resurrection Choir meets on an as-needed basis and provides musical comfort and solace to the bereaved for the funerals of their loved ones. Funerals at St. Madeleine Sophie parish are generally in the mornings and the day can vary so many of our members are retired or otherwise free to join us. Members are informed of funerals through email and phone calls a few days in advance. This group rehearses once or twice a year to keep our musical selections polished and to ensure we are providing a wonderful ministry to those who seek comfort.
