The Madeleine Music Ministry
Do you love to sing or play an instrument? Our Madeleine Music Ministry is looking for YOU to join one of our wonderful music ministry teams! ALL are welcome!!
The Madeleine Choir (ages 16 and above):
Our Madeleine Choir is the primary ensemble of our music ministry program. Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 7-9pm in the church. The choir sings at the 10am liturgy every Sunday, as well as special musical programs and feast days throughout the year. The Madeleine Choir sings a variety of sacred music from chant to gospel and contemporary praise music – all within a supportive small faith community that sings, prays, and plays together!
Madeleine Children’s Choir (grades three and above):*
Our Madeleine Children’s Choir is for all Parish and School elementary and middle school children (second graders accepted by permission). Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 2:45-3:30pm in the church, beginning September 28. The Children’s Choir sings throughout the year at the 10am liturgy, as well Christmas, Easter, and other special liturgies. This energetic group will learn to sing, play instruments, and enjoy a wide variety of sacred music. If your child loves music (and what child doesn’t?), have them be part of our Madeleine Children’s Choir! Please register by September 21.
