Plans for 2016

Happy New Year!

Several things have happened since I last wrote anything here. I never seem to have the time and/or the energy to keep up with this blog, so I'll try and do better this year. :-)

I won't go into detail, but we've been involved in many events and services including our first ever Choral Evensong (for the Manchester Ordinariate Mission) and a very successful overseas visit to Ireland and one, not so successful, but equally enjoyable visit to Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Italy & Liechtenstein (5 countries in 7 days!)

We were delighted to receive several wonderful comments following the Carol Service last month, and are now starting to make plans for the this year.
The Carol Service in York has already been booked for 20th December, but before then, we already have a confirmed Solemn Mass at St. Joseph's Church in Gateshead, for the Solemnity of St. Joseph on 19th March.
We're also keeping 2nd July free for what promises to be a very special event for our 20th anniversary, but I don't want to spoil things by building people's hopes up on here, just in case it doesn't happen, as there's a lot of work to do, administrative and logistical, if we're going to pull it off!

Before then, members of the schola will be singing Mass for the Epiphany at the splendid church of St. Charles Borromeo in Hull tomorrow evening at 6.30. There are already 3 more services looming this month which could involve some of our singers.

Looks like it could be a busy 20th anniversary year!
