Dear Parents and Students

The St. Kevin’s Youth and Family Ministry is inviting all students from Grade 3 to high school
who love to sing to be part of the St. Kevin’s Youth Choir! This wonderful and rewarding
experience will allow the students to be part of the mass in a truly engaging and exciting way.
Our students will meet twice a month from 6:15-7:15 to learn songs and rehearse in preparation
for one Sunday 5:00 pm mass (the last Sunday of each month). Another goal is to prepare for
and participate in the 8:00 pm Christmas Eve mass - a tradition of 15 years now that has the
youth of the parish leading the music ministry with beautiful vocal and instrumental music. Many
of the participants were very young when they first started their participation at this Christmas
Eve mass, and now as adults they still return, many from other cities, to be part of this wonderful
It is our hope that through meaningful musical participation in the mass, your child will enjoy the
many rewards of being in a music ensemble as well as being part of the mass in a fun and
uplifting way!!
Our music team will be led by Dahlia Brannigan, with assistance from various other
St. Kevin’s Youth and Family Ministry team members.
Our rehearsals take place the last two weeks of the month, however, the day of the week for
practices will be determined by the first week of school an all those registered will be informed.
The children will sing at the last Sunday of the month at the 5:00 p.m. Mass . We will meet at the
church in the choir area and your child needs only to bring his/her enthusiasm!!
If you would like your child to participate in this wonderful opportunity, then please complete and
return the application to the church office, one per child. Registration forms can also be found
on the church website under the Youth tab, www. stkevin or contact me at . Join us on Facebook at St. Kevin’s Youth and
Family Minsitry Welland and follow us on Twitter at

Yours in Christ,
