SJB Children’s Choir

Dear Parents and Students,  

Singing in a choir can be lots of fun!  Choristers are given the opportunity to serve and develop an identity as a life long worship leader and participant in the church.  The choir will rehearse on Thursdays from 2:35-3:45 PM.  Please review the schedule below before making a commitment.  The Children’s Choir Participation Guidelines are posted.  Please review the attendance policy. 

Parent support is welcomed.  We need help with robe fittings during rehearsals, snack sign-ups, roster, Sunday morning Mass preparation, choir loft duty.

The Children’s Choir is open to all students in grades three through five. There are no auditions. We ask that students not only attend rehearsals but participate in the Sunday Masses and performance events scheduled on the calendar. The choir will participate in the American Federation Pueri Cantores yearly Treble Choir Festivals. Pueri Cantores is the Vatican based official student choral organization of the Catholic Church. Please review the rehearsal schedule and calendar of events. Students will be asked to commit to the schedule before they are issued music and robe.
