Since the celebration of the liturgy is the very lifeblood of parish and family life at St. Adelaide's, it is essential to teach our children to sing the sacred hymns of the faith and the to sing the parts of the Mass that belong to the congregation. The following are some of the hymns and service music used regularly at the 10:00 a.m. Family Mass on Sundays. Our Religious Education team uses these files to teach and reinforce the singing of sacred music during our weekly classes, and you are encouraged to make use of them with your children at home as well. Unless otherwise noted, the following sound clips were recorded by The Choristers of Saint Adelaide under the direction of our Organist & Choirmaster, Michael Olbash.
