choirs

Music and singing play an important part in any Eucharistic celebration as they give the rites - solemnity, dignity and beauty. The purpose and task of the Choir is to lead, to animate, to support and encourage the full participation of the congregation. The Rosary Church choir plays a very important role in leading the congregation to glorify God and aims at enriching the liturgical services by creating an atmosphere that helps people experience a holy moment, a moment with God and healing during the Eucharistic celebration.

Parishioners, who join the choir, do so for the love of music and do not necessarily have any prior musical training. The choir has grown tremendously under the direction of the choir conductor Vilbert D'souza. Vilbert has worked sincerely and persistently to hone and refine the choir, thus creating a cohesive group of well-blended voices.

As has been the practice over the past several years, the Parish Choir sings at special feasts and liturgies and on other occasions in the Parish. For instance, when there is a death in the parish and the family approaches a choir member to organise a choir for the funeral, the parish choir has always reached out to the bereaved family.
