COMMUNITY!

JOIN OUR MUSIC MINISTRY!

The Family, Adult and Children’s Choirs are beginning their new season,
and we would love to have you join us!

Family Choir - The Saint Linus Family Choir is open to everyone, and will sing at Family Masses. We will begin with a brief rehearsal before mass, then share our talents. That’s it. There is no large commitment, and it’s a fun activity to do as a family, plus a rewarding way to participate in the Mass. Children must be in at least 2nd grade and accompanied by an adult or older sibling. If you’ve always wanted to give choir a try, but can’t commit to regular rehearsals, masses and holidays, this group is for you! The first Family Mass this group will participate in is on Sunday, October 27 at 12 Noon mass before the Trunk or Treat festivities, and we will meet in the choir loft at 11:20 am for a brief rehearsal prior to the start of noon mass.

Children’s Choir - The Saint Linus Children’s Choir is open to all children, grades 3-8. The St. Linus School children, grades 3-5, rehearse on Mondays from 2:20 to 3:00 pm. There is another rehearsal immediately following from 2:45 to 3:30 pm for children in grades 6-8. All rehearsals are in the church. The Children’s Choir sings at the Family Masses (a great opportunity for parents, grandparents, cousins, friends and siblings to sing with them in our Family Choir). They will also sing for our Christmas Concert on December 4, and on Christmas Eve at the 3 pm Mass, plus additional dates in the spring such as Easter and May Crowning. This is an excellent opportunity for your child to participate more fully at mass and give back to the community in a ministry. Plus we have a lot of fun too!! First rehearsal is Monday, September 23.

Adult Choir - The Saint Linus Adult Choir is open to anyone over the age of 16. There are no auditions - the only requirement is that you can commit to rehearsals and the dates we’re scheduled to sing. You don’t consider yourself a great singer? THAT’S OKAY!! Choir is all about the blend – you’d never have an entire choir composed of Pavarottis – those are big voices who don’t play well with others. We want adults with joy in their hearts, who have a desire to be part of something bigger (and who enjoy lots of fun), who want to participate more fully at mass and be part of an AWESOME ministry with FABULOUS people, and who have a love of music and want to share that with others who feel the same way. The adult choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm. We sing two regular 9 am Sunday Masses every month, plus with the Family Choir (see above). We also sing on Christmas Eve at the 3 pm Mass, plus our Christmas concert on December 4, and many additional dates in the spring. I hope you will seriously consider joining us. This choir is warm and welcoming, we laugh a lot, and upon joining you will be part of a new, loving family. Use the parking lot entrance off Lawler. See you at our first rehearsal on September 18.

10 REASON TO JOIN THE ADULT CHOIR

  1. You become part of a fun-loving, caring family of singers. We want you there!
  2. It's great for your health!
  3. It's a good excuse to get out of the house on Wednesday night - "Honey, I'm going to choir practice."
  4. There are no NFL games on Wednesday nights!
  5. The choir director is cute and funny. (Okay, she wrote this, but you can't blame a gal for trying!)
  6. Laughter is the best medicine - and we do that a LOT.
  7. You learn new, beautiful, lively music and get to perform it frequently.
  8. It's an incredible opportunity to participate in mass more fully. Plus it's an activity you can do with your spouse, partner or family.
  9. Singing is therapeutic and good for the soul.
  10. You will ALWAYS have a great seat on Christmas and Easter!!

5 ADDITIONAL REASONS WHY MEN SHOULD JOIN THE ADULT CHOIR

  1. Choirs always need more men! Plus our guys are terrific people, you'll love singing with them, and the women in the vhoir are all good looking...
  2. We are always done singing in plenty of time to catch the Bears game.
  3. You will become more attractive! Women swoon over a man who can sing!!
  4. It cures baldness!! Everyone knows that singing in a choir cures male pattern baldness. If you see my any bald men in a choir, it's because they waited to long to join!!
  5. WHEN the CUBS make it to the World Series again, you are excused from rehearsal - because the director will also be watching!!
