The music group at the 10:30 a.m. Mass is lead by Chris Lundin and a number of very dedicated parish music ministers. The group includes a number of instrumentalists (flutes, violins, guitars, bass, drums and piano) as well as a number of very talented singers. (And some both play and sing!). Chris encourages all ages to become involved as soon as they are musically competent, and so young people find the group a welcoming place to begin to use their musical abilities on behalf of the parish.
On the 4th Sunday of each month, at the OLR Family Mass, we try to involve the younger children as part of the Children's Choir. Any interested young people are encouraged to come forward at that mass to sing together with the usual choir. At the current time, this once-a-month opportunity is being coordinated by Louise Barnett. If you have a particular interest in helping support or organize the Children's Choir, please talk to Chris or Louise after mass.
The 10:30 a.m. Choir also forms a nucleus for the monthly Youth Mass choir, although augmented by additional youth musicians from across the entire parish. The monthly Youth Masses are held at Our Lady of the Rosary at 6:00 p.m. on Sundays once a month.
Anyone interested in assisting with any of the above ministries should talk to Chris after mass.
