Children’s Choir

Logistics
 

The Christ King Children's Choir leads our sung prayer at one of the weekend Masses every three weeks.   This group is open to any child in grades three through six.  Rehearsals are on Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 pm until 5:00 pm.  The choir rehearses and performs September through April.


 
Philosophy
 
Singing in a choir helps us to develop the qualities of self-discipline, determination, self-confidence, and pride in individual and group accomplishment.   These qualities help any choir member in dealing with life’s challenges, but are especially important to children who are learning Christian values.  God communicates with us through the arts!  Choral music in particular, the singing of sacred words and ideas, helps children develop a deeper understanding of God and of themselves.  
 
Learning to be good stewards of what God has given to us is part of our faith.  The Children's Choir helps children discover the gift of music they have been given and offers them an oportunity to share time and energy in the service of others.  Singing in a children’s choir is most importantly a ministry.  In much the same way that readers, altar servers, and communion ministers perform special tasks in service to the worshipping community, so too, the children’s choir and all musicians perform a sacred ministry for the Church.   This ministry expects much of us; it calls choir members to be living witnesses of the Gospel and to inspire the assembly to pray through word, song, and active listening.   This ministry asks that we cooperate in the Christian spirit, and grow in our faith and musical abilities.  Ministry calls us to serve and not be served.
