Singing belongs to the one who loves.

The Adult Choir leads and supports the assembly in praising God through song. Members of the Adult Choir are men and women who are devoted to singing during the Masses throughout the year. From August to June, choir members commit one hour of rehearsal per week as well as one Sunday Mass, three out of the four weeks of the month. In addition to Sundays, the Adult Choir sings for the major feasts of the liturgical year, including Christmas, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, the Easter Vigil and Confirmation. The Mass and rehearsal schedule is available on this page. For more information, please contact Joe Chrisman (firstname.lastname@example.org).

In 2013 Holy Name of Jesus Parish celebrated its 50th Christmas Concert. This wonderful tradition begun by Jerry Craney is synonymous with Holy Name. The Christmas Concert is held in December just prior to Christmas. The choir begins meeting in August for evening rehearsals. As the concert draws closer, the evening rehearsals become longer and more frequent. There are two concerts. This is truly a great opportunity to enter into the celebration of Christmas. If you are interested in joining the Christmas Choir this year or in participating in the orchestra, please contact Joe Chrisman.

Currently, the youth choir sings one weekend Mass per month throughout the school year. The schedule of Masses and rehearsals are included on this page. The Holy Name youth choir affords participants the opportunity to learn about liturgical music and music ministry.
