Greetings! Some have asked for the master schedule to be posted on the website. Here it is as proposed at this date. This includes everything evening the kitchen sink. Before long it will move to it’s own button under the Senior Girl Chorister Schedules.

Something New this year will be posts of highlights of the season. There will be one for Novice Choristers, Junior Choristers and Senior Boy and Senior Girl Choristers. These are highlights of special projects for the season to help everyone keep track. The full and complete schedule for each area of the community will be posted in the appropriate button of this secure area.

Thank you for your suggestions. We keep trying to make things as easy as possible to follow!
