This year the Star of the Sea Children's Christmas Choir will perform 2 pieces:
The pieces will be sung at the Star of the Sea Christmas Eve mass (Dec 24 at 5 pm). Choir practices will be held during the Children's Liturgy segment of 11 am mass over the next few Sundays in December up until Christmas Eve.
On Christmas Eve, please have your children wear their Sunday best (white top and black bottoms are also acceptable). Children are to arrive at 4:15 pm so we can do one final rehearsal before the performance after Fr. Richard's homily.
