Weekly Updates for Nov. 7: Youth Group Service Project Sunday, DYC Registration, O Antiphons, and more.
TREATING FOR SAINTS 2019
Our PREK-5th grade students “treated for Saints” this past Sunday. The middle school youth group explained a little bit about select saints and created a “chain of Saints” with information on each loop. At the end, the kids got to pick a special treat. Thanks to the Middle School Youth for such a fun and informative way to celebrate the Saints!
Youth group service project is this Sunday,
November 10th in Parish Hall from noon to 1:30. We will create ornaments for the Advent Giving Trees and have pizza lunch!
All middle school and high school youth are welcome but you need to sign up! Email Joy Weir if you plan to come: email@example.com
Presentation of the
Sunday, November 24 | Following 9:00am Mass | Parish Hall
All are welcome to this beautiful presentation of the O Antiphons sung by Cathedral Cantor Lauren Tompkins and explained by Mary Alice Teller. The Roman Church has been singing the O Antiphons since at least the eighth century. Their repeated use of the imperative "Come!" embodies the longing of all for the Divine Messiah. Come hear the beautiful sung presentation and enjoy fellowship with parishioners as we all prepare for Advent!
The Cathedral is excited to continue a Children’s Choir for the 2019-2020 year. The choir will consist of children in Grades 1-8. The choir will be directed by Mrs. Amy Hruska, a Cathedral member who has taught music in the Richmond community for thirty-seven years and conducted the Children’s Choir for the last three years. She is excited to work with your children and wants to ensure their success through communication and cooperation.
We will have a short window of rehearsals, so it is important for the participating children to be present at all rehearsals. The rehearsals are:
