be joyful.  God Loves you!

$10 per Mass Intention.

ADULT CHOIR & BELL CHOIR OPENINGS

There are openings in the Bell Choir and Adult Choir in all voice parts for choral singers.

Prospective singers should have a pleasant agile voice.  The commitment of time and focused energy is important, particularly at Christmas and during Holy Week.  If you have the desire to serve our OLP parish community in this very special way, please contact the Parish Office.
