The Basilica Chamber Choir is back in session!

16 visitors RSVP’d for our September 7th choir open house and first rehearsal of the season.

Who’s missing from the group?

Last spring when we began our discussions about this open house, I suggested to choir members that we need to “cast our nets on the other side of the boat” when we brainstorm about recruiting and welcoming new singers. You’ll have to look back on the USCCB website to confirm that I am not making this up: that very reading about the miraculous catch was the Gospel reading for Thursday, September 7th—the day of our open house! A coincidence? I don’t believe so. I believe it is a gentle reminder that Spirit is at work in what we do as a church. We can make flyers, advertise, and all the rest but it is the Holy Spirit that infuses these efforts with life.

16 visitors but once again I ask…who’s missing from the group?

If you or someone you know would like to come and check out the choir, please let me know. It’s never too late to join. The Spirit’s call is never late…it’s always right on time.
