Handbell Choir (St. Vitus)
Bereavement Choir (St. Vitus)
The Bereavement Choir is committed to providing a service for families who have lost a loved one. Music, being both comforting and inspiring at times like these, can soothe the pain the families are experiencing. Members of the Bereavement Choir are also members of the St. Vitus Adult Choir, but anyone is welcome to sing if his or her schedule permits. These choir members are called on an “as-needed” basis and find that ministering in this special way is very fulfilling.
