Our Lady of the Assumption Choirs:

The Assumption Choir sings at the 11:00 Mass on Sunday mornings at OLA. We are working on a repertoire that includes traditional hymns, sacred songs, polyphony and chant. If you are inspired to join us, we would love to meet you. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30. Alane Boudreau is the director and organist; her email is music1@stbernardsparish.ca

St.Bernard’s Saturday Choir:
The St. Bernard’s Saturday choir provides music for the 5 PM Saturday Masses. There are no weekly rehearsals but we do practice for 20-25 minutes before Mass. We are a small choir and would gratefully welcome more voices and musicians. Please feel free to drop in whenever you are able, or join us for your parish ministry.
