A multinational group of parishioners have united to form a unique blend of talent and spirit to praise God in the liturgy of the Mass. The choir performs hymns from all over the world combining a diverse range of vocal capabilities and instruments. Practices are held an hour before Mass and by prior arrangement.
MORE ABOUT US
Our OLM Choir has over 40 more or less regular members ranging in age from 11 to 70+, and in true OLM fashion, about 8 nationalities are currently represented! Of course, new members are always welcome - just come to the Parish rooms at 10.15 on Sunday morning to sing with us.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We sing! We sing with the aim to encourage and guide as many of the assembly as possible in the singing, which forms such as fundamental part of our Mass. We do not intend to perform. Yes, at times we will sing a hymn that does not ask for the assembly's participation but most of the time we ask you to sing with us. We select each Sunday's music carefully to reflect the readings and the Gospel as well as trying to cover as many styles and tastes as possible. We try to make our music as diverse as our Parish! This is all done in an effort to improve our community's worship experience and therefore bring us closer to the Lord through music. Over the last years, we also organized several successful fund-raising concerts for our Good Neighbours Fund. click here to hear us sing a blessing!
Every first Sunday of the month one of the children's CCD classes prepare the Mass. The children become our readers, they welcome the community and recently we have encouraged them to participate in the preparation of the music, as well. Our choir director practices a song with them and they also cantor the response to the Psalm.
