The St. Joseph Choir sung beautifully during the mass at St. Joseph church. Mrs. Bernardi really did a great job in coordinating all of these songs with the group of students. I think masses are extra special when the choir are children, would you agree?
I don't go out right away after the mass because I love taking pictures of the kids after the celebration. Here's our daughter with her friends. These lovely girls will be in 8th grade next school year,, whew, where did the time go? I can still remember the very first day I dropped my daughter off to school in kindergarten, I felt sick to m,y stomach as I walked away from school.
The church was well decorated for the season. Lots of beautiful poinsettia and a big nativity scene alongside a tall Christmas tree.
Glad our daughter is up to it. It's amazing how some of them got so tall and big all of the sudden. Our daughter said that she's the only one that's not growing lol. I told, it might be a good thing.
Ahhh one more year and I will have a high school student.It was hard recording a video since we were seated at the back but here are some of the videos. The parochial priest, Fr. Dennis, started the mass by singing the Alleluia.
I hope that all of you had a great Christmas. I wish you all a joyous and prosperous new year. May it bring good health and lots of joy to your home and personal lives!
That must have been such a lovely performance. I haven't seen a choir in many years, but have always loved them.ReplyDelete
Everyone is dressed so nice. Bet you had a wonderful evening. Glad you took so many photos.ReplyDelete
Do you live in St. Joseph, MI, by chance? (I'm also a Michigan blogger)ReplyDelete
And it's nice to have traditions.
What a beautiful place, and the kids did a fantastic job. This is such a nice experience to have during the holidays!ReplyDelete
Those poinsettias are absolutely gorgeous and your children are beautiful. It's nice to see the whole family, gathering together and going to church. Love how the church is decorated for Mass!ReplyDelete
What lovely photos! We don't go to church, but yours is so pretty! Everyone did great in the choir.ReplyDelete
Love all of their dresses - these kids are totally looking fabulous! And also, what a beautiful Christmas tree!! Looks like a fantastic and peaceful time was had.ReplyDelete
These are beautiful pictures! I love all the Christmas songs but my fave one is probably Hark the Herald Angels Sing. That one always gets me every time!!ReplyDelete
Wow the kids did such an amazing job performing! I love that you captured it on video!ReplyDelete
I love children's choirs its always extra special I think and your daughter is right, her friends are well taller than her but thats ok she has time to catch up and even if she doesnt it still fine :)ReplyDelete
Coir singing by children always takes the singing to another level. Nice to see the kids participating with keen interest.ReplyDelete
Its my favorite time of the year too. However, my birthday is two days before Christmas so my birthday presents tend to get combined. Happy Holidays to your family!ReplyDelete
I always love to hear the kids sing. I applaud the music teachers because I’m sure it’s hard to get them in order.ReplyDelete
My daughter has a bday 2 weeks after Christmas so we shop for both occasions at the same time.
Loved seeing all of the festive outfits! I agree that there is something so special when the choir is children. Really touches your heart!ReplyDelete
They all looks and sound so amazing. I hope they really stick with the program!ReplyDelete
How wonderful! My daughter was a music major in university and from the time of 5th grade we had several choir concerts every year. It was so much fun. I actually miss those days.ReplyDelete
Sounds like the church community was so incredibly lucky to have such a talented school choir to help celebrate Christmas. Wish I was there to see the St. Joseph School Choir in person!ReplyDelete
I love children's choir. They are the best, and usually introduce them to some of their best experiences! I enjoyed reading this :)ReplyDelete
The choir and the altar were lovely. Babushka's sure there were plenty of proud parents in the audience. Choirs are such fun; hope they continue participating. BB2UReplyDelete
