Choir Singers Needed

If you are a music junkie that downloads recordings of chanting monks but don’t know how that singing gets done, or you like to harmonize while singing hymns there is an opportunity waiting for you. The TLM choir is looking for singers both male and female to help with the High Mass, no need to be a professional musician or sight reader to join us. Please consider making a commitment, without singers there is no sung Mass. Also, if you know of anyone who would be interested but needs an invitation to join us let me know. The choir rehearses on Wednesdays at 7.30 pm.

Contact information is: [email protected] or 717.413.006. You can also stop up in the choir loft after Mass.

All our singing is Ad maiorem Dei gloriam.
“To the greater glory of God”

Save the Date

There will be a Pontifical Mass with His Excellency, Bishop Ronald W. Gainer, Bishop Emeritus, on Saturday, May 25th at 11 am. A second collection will be taken during the next few weeks to help defray the cost of hiring singers for this Mass.
