On September 18th, 2021 Corpus Christi will be starting the children’s schola program for this year. There are two levels of schola based on age. On the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, the rehearsal schedule compliments that of the Maidens of Mary and Acolyte training. Please note that senior scholas will have additional rehearsals on the other Saturdays of the month.

The junior scholas study a variety of sacred music at an age appropriate level. They learn how to sing in an ensemble and how to read music, particularly Gregorian chant, in order to prepare them for singing in the senior schola. While these junior scholas do not sing at the monthly Masses, they will be preparing to sing for special occasions.
