This was an extremely busy and demanding time for the choir.
It all began on Sunday 2nd of December when we sang as usual at the 10:30 Mass in the Holy Spirit Church, after which we proceeded to make our way to the Wilton Shopping Centre where for over an hour we entertained shoppers with an array of Christmas Carols.
The following Sunday we were again ‘double jobbing’ singing as usual at the 10:30 am Mass and later that evening at 5 pm we were back in the Holy Spirit Church to partake in the Parish advent Service ‘Waiting in Hope’
This Christmas Eve prior to our Vigil Mass at 9pm the choir ( at the suggestion of Richard, our Musical Director,) started singing Carols at 8:30pm.It proved an outstanding success and it was most gratifying to see such a large crowd present to hear our pre Mass offering of well know Carols.
After Mass the spontaneous and prolonged applause of the congregation gave all in the choir a great Christmas boost and made all the hard work well worth while..it’s so uplifting to hear people say that our singing made their Mass so meaningful.
