The young people are an important part of the makeup of our community.  They are invited and encouraged to be involved, to develop and share their talents thru singing and playing instruments.  On Wednesday mornings a group of them gather for the 8:30 Mass to help with the music by singing and playing various percussive instruments.  This, along with special liturgies gives them the opportunity to be creative and develop and channel this creativeness thru music.  An on-going Children's Choir is our goal.

In June 2005, Cate Buescher, Frances Buescher, Hannah West, Annamarie Ramirez, Abby Barringer and Adrianna McGinnis represented our parish at the NPM Children's Choir Festival in Milwaukee, WI.  They spent a weekend prior to the main convention singing and working with a renound choir director and then gave a performance for the NPM Convention.  Mrs. Buescher and Mrs. Lisa Sabo accompanied the group to the festival.
