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.
