Choir School Ministry

Washington Heights Choir School is a free after-school program for children from Kindergarten to 5th grade. Our purpose is to train children to achieve early excellence and growth through music and arts education. Students receive individualized attention in a dynamic, creative, structured, and hands-on setting, from caring and inspiring teachers who are accomplished professionals in their areas of instruction. We help translate the early confidence and accomplishment students enjoy to other areas of their lives, preparing them for a lifetime of music and creative enjoyment, while building families, the parish, and the surrounding community through singing and the arts.

Ministry at the time of Coronavirus (Covid 19): Prevent, cure and accompany

Now we have to shape what some have started calling; The Church at Home. Although I keep asking myself; What do those who do not have a home do? For this reason, at the same time, I am declaring today in our Holyrood Church a Lenten day of prayer, fasting and reading the Bible in the Time of the Coronavirus.
