As you may or may not know, our Choir Director, Rosemary Thoms and our Organist, Danni Thoms have retired. In honour of serving the church for many, many years (40+), they enjoyed a quiet dinner at the Spot Restaurant with Fr McGrath, choir members and family present. Fr McGrath thanked them for their devotion and loyalty to the church and presented them each with a gift certificate. Rosemary & Danni will be playing until we can fill their positions.  


As a result, we are looking for a choir director and / or organist to play Sunday mornings.  Please drop a note to the Office if you or someone you know is interested in playing the organ.  We will be advertising in the local papers.  Musical background is an asset.
