St. Bernard Children’s Choir is open to children in St. Bernard School and Parish in grades 1 through high school. The choir is an excellent way for children to get involved with the liturgies…it opens up opportunities for soloing, cantoring and small group singing. We rehearse every Friday at St. Bernard School on Pearl St. from 3:00-4:15. We sing once a month at the Family Mass at St. Bernard Church or Holy Family Church. In addition to the Family Masses, we also sing at special church events like Living Stations of the Cross, First Communions and at Christmas time we perform a concert with the adult choir.
The Children's Choir has also been invited several times to sing at St. Joseph’s Cathedral for the Pro Life Mass in October, we have sung God Bless America at the Rockcats baseball games and Springfield Thunderbirds hockey games, and we have been asked on two occasions to sing at the First Mass of newly ordained priests.
An information packet and registration form will be sent home with students during the first week of school each year. If you are interested in having your child join at any other time, or would like more information, you can contact Beth Surapine at the St. Bernard Music Office at 860-749-6801 or email at [email protected]
