St. Jude Handbell Choirs provide a satisfying, exciting musical experience for beginner and advanced musicians alike, while enhancing the beauty of the Mass. The group adds an element of exhilaration hard to equal with any other musical instrument. The ministry goal of these choirs is to inspire people to worship and bring peace and joy to the assembly while starting the bell ringers on a life-long path of musical appreciation and achievement. Bells are a source of endless fun and entertainment, while teaching teamwork and cooperation, fostering self-esteem and responsibility and developing physical and social skills.
The handbell choir consists of Ringers (8th grade through adult) - 3 octaves, Levels 1-3 music; members should already read music, or be willing to learn (basic music skills and theory are reviewed); choir performs at various liturgies and celebrations.
Rehearsals: Wednesday - 5:30p.m.
