The youth choir helps to enhance the music of the liturgy with their singing. The youth learn not only how to sing as a group, but also become acquainted with the hymns, songs, psalmody, and responses of the Mass. Ultimately, they learn to sing and pray as active members of the community.

The youth choir is open to boys and girls fourth grade through 8th grade and is lead by Maura Burns and Gary Bishop. We rehearse 3 times a month (during the school year), followed by singing at the 11:00 am Mass the last Sunday of the month. We do not meet in December, although the Youth Christmas Choir does (which is open to youth pre-k through high school).

Please be sure you are part of the our Flocknote group “STJG Youth Choir.” Any changes to dates, times, or locations will be sent through email.

Warm-ups begin at 6:15 so plan to arrive a few minutes early.

Please email Maura ( if your student will not be able to attend a rehearsal. Thank you.
