Reception for families and singing boys and ringers to follow the Mass. Your son is welcome to invite a friend to join him at one of these rehearsals.Boys for the choir are best "discovered" when they receive an invitation to come and "join our voices." The personal touch is very important. The choir is exciting and satisfying when the boys look forward to singing "good" songs with other boys they know and appreciate. Your continuing efforts to introduce new families and boys to the GGBC program benefit us, and we thank you! Mr. Steven MeyerDirector
