The Holy Guardian Angels Choir is an adult music ministry with a mission to enhance the liturgy of the Mass and other religious rites through song.
The choir is comprised of male and female parishioners who enjoy singing in four-part harmony. There are no auditions to be a choir member nor is it necessary to read music. If you can carry a tune, you are exactly who we are looking for.
The choir is under the direction of Mrs. Sue Swavely, who has an extensive background in choral music. Our accompanist is Mrs. Anne Lazar.
Rehearsals are held every Thursday evening from 6:45pm-8:30pm in the church choir loft. Our repertoire ranges from familiar Latin hymns to contemporary compositions. We have a vast library of music including Masses of Creation, Celtic, and Heritage to name a few.
We sing at every 10am Sunday Mass (excluding summer months). The choir is acclaimed for the Vespers program performed during Advent. It wouldn't be Christmas at HGA without the Choir providing inspirational hymns in the prelude to Midnight Mass. We are also an integral part of the solemnity of Holy Week and Forty Hours Devotion.
If singing during Mass strikes a chord with you, then consider joining the Holy Guardian Angels adult choir!
