Youth Choir

Youth Choir

The St. Joseph Parish Youth Choir is composed primarily of youth and young adults with most members hailing from the St. Joseph Youth Group, with mentorship from members of the Voices of Praise choir. The youth choir puts a particular focus on teaching and catechesis through music, as this is part of the natural journey of growth (and skepticism) in faith which young people go through. For this same reason, the repertoire of the youth choir is extremely varied, ranging from contemporary Catholic music at Mass (or even Christian music at non-Eucharistic services) to various traditional hymns during the holy seasons, even to ancient Latin chants.

The youth choir serves the vigil mass of the fourth Sunday of every month (the Saturday evening before), and rehearses every week; in addition to serving Stations of the Cross in Lent, Palm Sunday during Holy Week, and the Christmas Eve Family Mass. The youth choir is predictably decimated by one third of its membership every year by school graduations and activities, and is therefore always looking for new members!
