From the Music Director

choir-7_0Please take a minute to look at the bulletin board between the Sanctuary and the Parish Hall for news and info related to the music of our Faith and St. Luke’s. You will find info on famous Catholic musicians, featured hymn of the week, and pertinent info on St. Luke’s music. First rehearsal for the Children’s Choir will be the 2nd week of September, time to be determined. The more young people we have, the more fun and meaningful it can be.
