In the Beginning...
The choir came about to support the English Youth Mass on Sunday nights as far back as 1984. Like any choir, its function is to lead the congregation in prayer... and singing is very important part of prayer.
Joining the Choir
Everyone in the choir would agree that it’s greatly satisfying to be part of a group that makes youth mass so enjoyable. It is more than singing a song or two ?it’s about singing that encourages, motivates and invites all the congregation to join in celebrating the mass.
If anybody would like to join the choir, please feel free to contact Emma before or after the Youth Mass on Sunday night
The choir rehearses every Sunday both before and after mass, primarily to review hymns for the mass. For special occasions thought, rehearses are organized and scheduled throughout the working week, It is not only an opportunity to brush up on singing techniques and harmonies, but to learn a variety of new material.
While the hymns for the mass are usually selected by Emma, the Choir as a whole will often help in the process, offering creative suggestion. The hymns chosen are based on their relevance to the gospel, a particular feast day, or the Church season.
Males and Females
For the fullest and richest tones, the choir works best when there are both males and females singing. They are grouped separately for clearer choir sound, vocal ranges and harmonies.
The Rock Mass is a terrific opportunity to do something a little different with the Church hymns. While you won’t hear any Pop Music or Hard Rock, you will certainly be impressed with stylised rock arrangements of mass parts and hymns. With the help of the Wehbe-Bechara Band, it has definitely made its mark, packing congregations to the rafters. But, as any choir member will tell you, the rock mass requires 200% effort, and always attracts a large number of people volunteering to be part of the choir.
Rock masses are usually held on an important day of the Church Calendar to mark the event.
The Marian Apostolic Movement (MAM) are a group of young individuals who aged over 18, from various backgrounds. They Share a common belief in CHRISTIANITY.
They assist the Parish Priest with Mass and the Church’s activities.
They are also involved in Special Easter and Christmas celebrations, plus other spiritual events.
To be a member, you need to be at least 18 years of age, faithfully committed to your religious obligations and to respect and accept all the by-laws set in the MAM constitution. Once the specified conditions have been satisfied, the member proceeds to the next stage which lasts 3 months. This is the testing period during which the executive committee monitors how the designated member is coping and adapting with their duties and obligations of a MAM member. If the designated member does well during those 3 months then they are announced as a member. A year later, the member may decide to take the MAM oath, and their name is registered in the MAM list.
"Be careful not to do your "acts of righteousness" before men,to be seen by them.If you do,you will have no reward from your father in heaven.So when you give to the needy,do not announce it with trumpets,as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the sreets,to be honored by men.I tell you the truth,they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy,do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,so that yor giving maybe in secret.Then your Father who sees what is done in secret,will reward you."
