St. Augustine Children's Choir

Members of the St. Augustine Children's Choir are mostly, if not all, children attending faith formation classes in the parish. Children aged 7-16 are admitted to the Children's Choir. Membership is limited to fifty children. The choir regularly sings at the eleven o'clock Mass every Sunday. The choir also sings for liturgical, para-liturgical, and social events in the parish and community.

To join, the following requirements must be met:

  • The child must know how to read.
  • The child must audition with Sr. Nona Barairo.
  • An application form must be filled out.
  • A minimal one-time membership fee must be paid for the gown and stole.
  • Attend Friday rehearsals from 5:30 PM -6:30 PM (day & time are subject to change.)

Congratulations to our Children's Choir Members, Gary (piano) and Gerard (flute) Cruz for serving as mass accompanists - outside of the Children's Choir - for the last 2 Saturday afternoon masses: for Jillian Perillo on 1/11, and for Marga Dalsfoist 1/18.

These 13-year-old twins have been members of our kids choir since they were 7 years of age; and with the guidance and support of their parents, Cleo and Gregg Cruz, we can be sure they will continue to be an inspiration not only to their peers but to everyone at any age.
Children are a gift from the Lord. (Psalm 127:3) ... and we also believe that children are the church's most valuable resource.
