Mrs. Eileen Hirota will be directing a Christmas Cantata this year and is asking if members of our music ministry are interested in participating. The cantata will be one that some of us have done before called, "One Incredible Moment."
See the "Christmas Cantata" page for more details (including rehearsal and performance schedules as well as practice recordings)!
Visit the "Combined Choir" page for more information on this year's Thanksgiving Day Mass celebration. All choir members from our various OLS choirs are asked to participate. Practice will be on Sunday, November 21 at 2:30 PM.
All choir directors and representatives are asked to attend our End-of-the-Year General Meeting on Sunday, November 14 at 12:30 PM at the office library.
This important meeting will discuss the upcoming liturgical year (2011) as well as many changes with scheduling. Also, other resources and materials will be distributed. All choirs should be represented.
Rejoice Choir and OLS Praise Choir directors Russell and Cookie Nacapuy along with accompanist Millie Nacapuy say aloha to their choirs and their leadership role in our OLS Music Ministry at the end of this year.
For the past several decades, the Nacapuy's have given selflessly to the music ministry, forming the Rejoice Choir as well as the OLS Praise Choir (formerly known as the Children's Praise Choir and Teen Praise Choir). Through their gift of music and service, they have undoubtedly contributed tremendously to the liturgical life of the parish as well as in so many other various facets of our community life.
The Nacapuy's are not moving away nor are they leaving the parish. They simply needed some time and space especially as family needs have recently become much more necessary in their lives. The music ministry and parish can only express utmost gratitude for their countless hours of dedication and decades of service to God's Church, and we wish them well in their future endeavors. Our prayers will always remain with them and their 'ohana!
Sadly, Rejoice Choir will be disbanded following their last Mass on October 31. The OLS Praise choir will be under the direction of Nicole Sullivan beginning in January. Please keep all these changes in your prayers and continue to offer your support to all involved during this time of transition.
A new section has been added to the website called "Choir Info," which will be used to feature information for individual choirs. Currently there is only a page for the "Combined Choir" and the "YAM Choir," but more choir pages will be added in the future as requested or needed.
Also, there will be updates to the "Combined Choir" page to reflect upcoming events including the Thanksgiving Day Mass, Immaculate Conception Mass, and Advent Communal Reconciliation Service.
See please check back again for further updates to this website!
