Childrens Choir
Mission

The St. Bartholomew Children's Choir is a parish ministry that allows children in grades 3 through 8 the opportunity to serve the parish community in the context of liturgy. The Children's Choir is an integral part of the 10am Children's Liturgies, leading worship during the Children's Liturgy of the Word. They also support the singing of the congregation and offer anthems related to the Scriptures of the day with the goal of raising hearts and minds to the worship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Rehearsals

Wednesday afternoons during the school year 4:30-5:30pm in the Church

About the Choir

The Children's Choir consists of children who attend any school and are currently in one of the following grades: 3 through 8. Most of the children are between the ages of 8 and 13. They form a small group community as they learn to breathe together (literally) and sing together.

2016-17 Highlights

On Epiphany Sunday in January 2017, the Children's Choir visited the residents of the Golden Living Center in Old Bridge. They led a Christmas Carol sing along with the residents who eagerly anticipated their annual visit. In March, ten members of the Children's Choir participated in a Children's Choir Festival in Abington, PA (near Philadelphia). The children, who came from several Pennsylvania and New Jersey churches, were directed by Dr. Mark Patterson. Mark Patterson is a choir director and composer. Some of his pieces have been heard at St. Bartholomew's. He composed a new piece for the festival which was an exciting experience for the participants.
