St. Cecilia's Choir

Sacred Music

Ever Ancient - Ever New

"the glory of God and the sanctification of the faithful"

Beginning in September 2019, St. Cecilia's Choir is a new youth initiative at St. Augustine's. Its aims are to bring the beauty of sacred music together with the joy of fellowship for young women in the parish. The choir is open to twenty young ladies, with any level of background in singing. The highlight of the choir's performances this fall will be leading the 4PM Christmas Eve Mass at the parish in 2019, and the 9AM Easter Sunday Mass in April 2020.
