Family Mass Music Starts Up Again on Sunday, September 9

Children and adults blend voice and instruments to praise the Lord and enrich our Sunday 9:00am Family Mass with upbeat, child-friendly, hand-clapping hymns. During the school year, we rehearse each Sunday morning at 8:00am in the Music Office on the lower level of the church to prepare for that day’s 9:00am Mass (no need to commit to every Sunday.) 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
