Children in grades 3 – 8 are welcome to participate in the Junior Choir. Practice is held weekly and they sing during the celebration of Holy Mass on Sundays. The group is led by the parish Director of Music.
Armata Bianca is a children’s rosary group, ages 4 – 12, who gather to spend time listening for Jesus’ voice, pray the rosary, offer special prayers of petition and thanksgiving, sing and praise God together. They also participate in fun activities to strengthen their Catholic faith. Each week, the children offer individual prayer intentions and pray together for the conversion of sinners, holiness within the family, the unborn, peace in the world, and the intentions of Our Holy Father.
