“The art of singing, which can express joy, trust, repentance, and love.” (Pope Francis) As we emerge from restrictions, we are endeavouring to rebuild our full participation in the liturgy.  We invite and urge parishioners of all ages with an interest in music and singing, to consider joining our Parish Choir in the celebration of Sunday Mass. The commitment of parishioners over the past few decades has been commendable and we would like to see the tradition of giving praise and thanks through singing, continue into the future and passed on in faith to a new generation.  If you, or members of your family/friends would like to help in any way we invite you to our practice which takes place from 8.00 to 9.00p.m. on Wednesday nights in Millstreet Church.
