Children from Holy Cross Parish and/or Holy Cross School, grades 2-6, may choose to participate in our Children's Mass Choir. We sing once a month during the school year at a weekend Mass. (We rehearse in the lower level about 45 minutes before the beginning of Mass.) Our job is to joyfully bring the congregation into the spirit of praise during the celebration of the Mass!
