COME SING CHRISTMAS SONGS
The St. Bart's Choir is starting on Christmas music, and we invite interested parishioners (teens and older) to join us for 4 rehearsals and our 11:00 pm Christmas Eve Mass.  Rehearsals will be held at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, November 30 and December 7, 14 and 21 in the church.  We will learn beautiful arrangements for chorus and instruments of Christmas favorites.  For those who can't sing at other times, this is a wonderful way to enter into the spirit of the season.  Bring a friend!  For questions, please see Jane or call 860-646-1613 x106.
