Family Mass Musicians Starts Up Again!

Children and adults blend voice and instruments to praise the Lord and enrich our Sunday 9am Family Mass with upbeat, child-friendly, hand-clapping hymns.  During the school year, we rehearse each Sunday morning at 8:10am in the music office on the lower level of the church to prepare for that day’s 9:00 a.m. Mass (no need to commit to every Sunday), and we also prepare special liturgies for Grade Level Masses, Advent, Christmas, Lent, Palm Sunday, Easter, and Pentecost.  All ages, grade 1 and older, are welcome! We are always seeking new singers and instrumentalists to join our ranks.   For more information please contact Maria Wardwell at 781-237-2148 or maria.wardwell@stjohnwellesley.org
