St. Mary Adult Choir

Have you been considering joining our St. Mary Choir ranks?  Have you been saying for awhile now, “I think I’d like to be a part of the choir one of these days…”  Our season of singing will resume in early September, but now is the time to start thinking about the possibilities and prayerfully considering whether God is calling you to this ministry.  We practice once a week and sing at the 8:45 Masses each week.  We are a very welcoming group and have a lot of fun together while making music to better pray the Mass.  If you would like to speak with Sharon Silleck ahead of time or want to have a “vocal tune up” before the season begins, please email our Sacred Music Director at ssilleck@stmarylancaster.org, call her at 614-419-5768 or stop up in the loft and talk with her.  Please take a few weeks and give this some thought, that our God may be glorified and your heart be filled with joy!

New Youth Group Coordinator

Hello, my name is Rachel McAnespie. I am very excited to be taking over as coordinator for youth group. Here’s a little background about me. I graduated Fisher Catholic High School in 2008, and then went on to college at Ohio University where I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I currently teach preschool here at St. Mary School. I will be starting my third year at St. Mary School this coming August. I was fortunate enough to work with youth group this past year, so I am really looking forward to help it grow! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via email at rmcanesp@cdeducation.org.

2016-17 Sacramental Preparation Information for Parish Families

The week of Sunday, 10 July, a postal mailing went out to active St. Mary School, St. Mary PSR, and St. Mary Homeschool parish families who have children who could begin preparing to celebrate the sacraments of Penance and holy Communion or Confirmation this coming year. The mailing contained general information and the calendar of sacramental preparation for parents who intend to begin preparing their children for sacraments this year.

If you did not receive this mailing, perhaps because you’re new to the parish or haven’t been active in religious education recently, please contact Brian McCauley at the parish as soon as possible to determine a religious education and sacramental preparation plan for your particular situation. Please contact us also if you’ve a child who is “out-of-sequence” in the sacramental life of the Church so we can together determine a timely and prudent plan.

Children’s Choir Camp 2016

Clinician Molly Rule works with Mrs. Silleck and our St. Mary Children’s Choir at last weeks Choir Camp.  Our students are gaining more skills in sight singing, making a beautiful tone, practicing good singing posture and continuing in learning new music.  Some games include arranging the different parts of the Mass into the correct order, “placing” the melodies of songs onto our bodies and even having fun with some movement and folk dancing!  We assembled for a picture of the whole group at the park after snack and break time.

The children have been so respectful and beautifully attentive.  They are a model group!
