“In praise of God meet duty and delight …” (Erik Routley)
The Saint Thomas Aquinas Choir (open to singers of high school age and up) rehearses at 9:45 a.m. each Sunday morning, singing for the 11:00 a.m. Mass. There is also a monthly rehearsal on the second Tuesday of the month from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and the choir sings for holydays and special events as announced.
The new choir season begins on Sunday, September 5, 2021. We welcome newcomers and Christopher Urbiel, Director, would be happy to speak with you about your interest. Please feel free to contact him at 740-453-3301, ext. 122 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Church holds the pipe organ “in high esteem, for it … adds a wonderful splendor to the Church’s ceremonies and powerfully lifts up man’s mind to God and to higher things” (Vatican II, Sacrosanctum Concilium, 120). We are blessed to have a versatile symphonic-style organ with a long history, provided and maintained through your generosity.
