OSP Children's Choir

Make music with us! Children in grades 2-8 are welcome to join the OSP Children's Choir. The Children's Choir generally sings at the 9:30 Mass on the 3rd Sunday of every month and also on holidays. The choir rehearses on the 1st Sunday of the month from 12:15-1:15 and at 8:30am on the morning just prior to their performance Mass. All rehearsals take place in the CHURCH HALL. Please note: the full schedule appears below--schedule variations occur around Christmas and Easter. No prior experience is necessary to join.

Consistency is important to creating a positive experience for both the children and those attending Mass. Although we know there will be scheduling conflicts, we hope that choir members will commit to attending most of the Masses and rehearsals during the year or during a season (Fall/Winter or Winter/Spring).

The children meet approximately twice a month: they rehearse each Sunday they sing (usually the third Sunday of the month) at 8:30am in the rectory, and every first Sunday of the month after Partners classes (except for December and January)
