As I was sending out a reminder for the start of Chorister classes, I took a second glance at the roster and thought readers of the Chant Cafe might be heartened by some numbers.
Last year we had about 35 kids in the program, then lost about 5 more as people moved or committed to other things. Over the summer, I asked our priests to pray and encourage more kids to join, especially a few more boys. And I followed the same recruiting plan. Pray and invite. Explain the program. Repeat.
Deo gratias, our efforts are bearing fruit! This year’s roster has:
- 45 young singers- from
- 24 families
- 22 boys
- 23 girls
- 15 new students, incl 3 returning.
