Mr. Patrick Flahive, Director
To prepare for membership in the Diocesan Children's Choir we have a program
designed for younger children, which teaches them the love of the liturgy, the love of singing
and the beautiful choral repertoire of the church.
No audition is required, only a love for singing! Grades 1 - 5.
