Schola/ multi-generational choir

The name schola is short for Schola Cantorum. It is the name given the choir by Fr. Dave Dohogne when he was the associate here. It means- a school that is part of a cathedral or monastery where boys with singing ability can receive a general education. In times past, this was considered the best choir in a given location. At the time, the name was a bit tongue in cheek. Today, as a multi-generational group, the name schola is well deserved.

We rehearse on Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM in the Cathedral. Part of the group sings at the 8:30 AM Sunday Mass and the other sings for the 5 PM. We combine for special occasions such as Christmas, Easter, and Confirmation.

Next Practice for the 8:30 and 5:00 pm Sunday Masses is August 8. Regular schedule resumes September 12 and every Thursday following at 6:30 – 7:30 in the cathedral. Come to practice then choose to attend either Mass on Sundays.
The adult choir also sings at many special Masses during the year.  When you come to a practice, you will be put on the email list which tells you other times that the adult choir sings.
Children’s choir contact person is still Ken Pesek
