MORE ABOUT US
Our OLM Choir has over 40 more or less regular members ranging in age from eleven to more than seventy. In true OLM fashion, about eight 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 of encouraging and guiding the congregation in the singing, which forms such a 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 carefully select each Sunday’s music to reflect the readings and the Gospel as well as covering 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 so bring us closer to the Lord through music. Over the last few years, we have also organized several successful fund-raising concerts for our Good Neighbour 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 and they welcome the community. Recently, we have encouraged them to participate in the preparation of the music, too. Our choir director practises a song with them and they also act as cantors in the response to the Psalm.
