The long and short of it is that choir camp was incredible. Ms. Ray did wonders with such a large group of children in the sheer amount of songs they learned. The children sang beautifully both at a local nursing home for a room full of enthusiastic residents, and also at Mass on Sunday.
The success of the choir camp really laid a foundation for a new style of catechesis (CCD) at St. Paul's this year. A vast number of the the children participate in both CCD and choir, which made it possible to organize the two around each other. This powerful combination of the great treasure we have in the music of the Church and solid teaching of the faith has become a lovely little program for the children of St. Paul's.
As far as sharing about the week, I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Here is a host of photos of our classroom, the prayerbooks the students made during work time, and their time with the choir.
