Bell Choir

Among the music sounds heard in a church, there is a great tradition of bells. For many years St. John’s has been blessed to have an Adult Bell Choir that incorporates hand bells into the liturgical prayer of the parish where their sound adds both richness and dignity. New people are always welcome and it helps to have basic music reading skills. The Adult Bell Choir plays at various liturgies during the year and practices on Wednesday from at 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Choir Room, just off the main church, from September to May. Here is the schedule for 2014-15:
