Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.
Here at Divine Mercy Parish, we strive to draw from the Catholic Church’s rich musical tradition to aid in the prayer and worship of those who attend our masses. Because the Church teaches us the value of beauty, we also host the Divine Mercy Parish Concert Series. On this page, you will find information concerning the choirs of Divine Mercy, any upcoming concerts, and all other important news concerning our music ministry. Please do not hesitate to contact our Director of Music, Justin Fields (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions you may have.
Divine Mercy Parish Choir:
The Divine Mercy Parish choir will have its first meeting on Thursday, September 19th, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at St. Cecilia Church. If you would like to join or know somebody that would like to join, please send an email to our Director of Music Justin Fields (address can be found above), or just show up. No prior singing experience is required. All are welcome! We look forward to another wonderful and beautiful Advent and Christmas season.
Divine Mercy Youth Choir:
The Divine Mercy Youth Choir is open to children in grades 2 to 8. Many children in the choir participate in our Religious Education program, but any child can join! We meet to rehearse 30 minutes prior before the 11:30 AM Mass in the St. Francis choir loft.. We always sing at the 11:30 AM Mass, and also sing for Christmas Eve, Easter Sunday, and Confirmation.
As the new year begins, we are excited to start up youth choir again. Parents that would like to have their children involved must sign a permission slip. You can pick up a permission slip at the Religious Ed office (located on 206 Skillman Ave).
Alternatively you can:
