FAMILY CHOIR:  The Family Choir is called the Family Choir because they sing at the "Family Mass" at 10 AM. This mass is the only mass without the organ. It is a contemporary choir with drums, guitars, and any other instruments available. It is also considered a "drop-in" choir that lets you "drop-in" and sing with us as your schedule permits.  If you are in 6th grade or older you may join the Fmaily Choir.  Join with a friend or a family member and make it even more fun. You may join any time throughout the year.  We practice at 9AM on Sunday in the Music Room and sing at the 10AM.
