The Shrine of the Immaculate Conception's

Welcome to the Grace Notes!

The Catholic Shrine's Children and Youth Choir

The Grace Notes' mission is to give children and youth in our parish the opportunity to participate in the mass. The first Sunday of each month, the Grace Notes meet in the parish hall in preparation for leading prayer in the 11am mass through song! 

Members of the Grace Notes will learn musicality, confidence, community, and most importantly: how to share the word of God with others. 

What is a grace note? A grace note is not only a cute ensemble name, but a musical term! Grace Notes are used as exciting ornamentation in a wide range of musical compositions. As a Grace Note ensemble member, YOU are adding the energy and lagniappe to the mass.
