Help Needed at the 4pm Vigil Mass

Do you like to sing?  Vivian Lucek, parish Choir Director is asking the KCs for help to sing at the 4:00 PM Saturday Vigil Mass.  Patti Lauve, who has directed the Vigil Mass choir, has temporarily stepped down from her duties so she can focus her energies on the care of her mother who recently fell victim to a stroke.  The Saturday Vigil has become one of the most attended masses, yet has the lowest participation of Choir members. Singing talent is not a prerequisite for participation.  Also, those with a musical instrument background are also invited to join in.  If you are interested in helping out with the music ministry, this choir meets at 3:00 PM for practice just before the Vigil Mass each Saturday.  You may call Vivian at 752-3575 or simply show up on Saturdays at 3 pm in the Music classroomin the Preschool Education Center.
