Join our new youth band! We are currently seeking 6th – 12th grade vocalists and 9th – 12th grade musicians to join in leading music at 10:30am Mass once a month. You only need to commit to one month at a time. Just check the bulletin for upcoming Masses, and then email us at least a week in advance to receive a lineup of songs and music to learn ahead of time. We will meet at 8:00am the morning of the Mass to rehearse as a group. If you would like to be in the band for our first Mass on Sept. 15th, please email Michelle Boris at mboris@ourladyofthelake.com by Sept. 8th. Please indicate if you want to be a vocalist, or what instruments you play (if you are in high school). Please include one of you parents on your email. Thank you!
