St Rose Choir Dec 24, 2014


Welcome to the St Rose Choir web site.  The choir is led by the parish Music Director Joseph Jacovino.

The choir sings at the 10:30 AM Mass on Sundays from the week after Labor day through the Feast of Corpus Christi. We also sing Christmas Eve, Holy Thursday, the Easter Vigil and our three Confirmation services. 

All scheduled masses at St Rose are streamed, so you can listen to us over the internet.  The Voice of St Rose can be accessed from the St Rose Church home page through the link to the Voice of StRose on the right side of that page.

The Dec 24, 2018 Midnight Mass and preceding mini-concert by the choir have been archived on the St Rose YouTube channel.
