Music Groups/Choirs The Music Ministry consists of volunteer groups of individuals under the direction of the Coordinator of Music Ministries who assist in leading the congregation in prayerful liturgy. We have a small folk group that leads the music at the 5 PM Mass, a choir at the 11 AM Mass and a number of groups that take turns leading the music at the 9 AM Mass.  We also have a Children's Choir that practices at 5:30 PM on Mondays (right before Catechism) and sings at the 11 AM Mass on the 2nd Sunday of the month beginning in November. If you are interested in sharing  your time and talents within our Music Ministry, please contact Heather at 204-832-1993 or by e-mail Chalice Program  Chalice is a Catholic charity that primarily supports community initiatives in developing countries through the sponsorship of children and elderly in need.
