Welcome to the PSP Youth Choir “One Voice”!
The Choir’s Roles/Ministries
The primary role of the choir is to support the singing of the entire assembly at the liturgy in the worship of our loving God. The choir’s secondary role is to sing choral music for the assembly, creating beauty and the opportunity for listening, rejoicing and reflection. Another minor but important role of the choir is to perform in concerts which can evangelize the community and provide an opportunity to give the gift of beauty and joy. Our ministry comes from our call as baptized members of the Body of Christ. Another important part of our ministry is to be caring and supportive of one another. Many friendships have begun in and been deepened and strengthened by participation in the ministry of the Youth Choir.
The Youth Choir rehearsals are Thursdays, from 5:30 to 7:00 PM, approximately September through June. There are occasional changes/exceptions, communicated ahead of time.
On most Sundays the Youth Choir sings at the 11:00 AM liturgy. Members are expected to be in the music area by 10:30 AM to allow time for warm-up, preparation, and sound check. There are occasional changes/exceptions, communicated ahead of time.
The minimum attendance expected for continuing membership in the Youth Choir is 80% of all services (rehearsals, liturgies, concerts), averaged over time. Consistent attendance is especially important at rehearsals because we rely on the cumulative effect of several rehearsals for much of the music we sing. In other words, it is not merely a case of “rehearsing this Sunday’s music on this Thursday”.
It may be helpful to think of the Youth Choir as a team sport and the director as the coach. If a team member who plays a certain position (sings a certain voice part) is absent from a practice, then the team (the choir) will be less prepared for the game (ministry at liturgy) and the experience of the other team members will not be as positive as it should be.
Youth Choir members are expected to make a serious commitment to this ministry and to miss only for the most serious reasons (like contagious illness).
Please let me know by e-mail
or phone call (805) 482·6417 ext.327
if you have to miss any services, as far ahead of time as possible. Also, let me know what I can do to make your experience with the Youth Choir a positive one.
We will provide a schedule attached of all our services through the end of this ministry year. We will also send out weekly music ministry e-mails with schedule reminders, music lineups for the coming weekend and other useful information. Occasionally we will send messages via Facebook, or cell phone texts.
Consider having an open, honest conversation with your teen about dating and appropriate relationships. Talk about what they want out of a relationship, and what their values are. Make sure they know how to communicate what they feel comfortable with, and what makes them uncomfortable. Talk with them about Catholic morals, and make sure they know you are always available.

We are so blessed to have 40 young people make the choice to go to a Catholic retreat called All for God, Steubenville San Diego on July 28 - 30 2017.
These young people age 17 to 27 are poised for a transformational experience that is authentically Catholic.
The cost is $200 per person for the three day event. If you would like to show your support of our young people please make a donation to Padre Serra Parish, write Youth Retreat in the memo line. We would love to pay a portion of the cost of this experience for this group.
Thank you sincerely, may God bless you for your caring heart.
Youth and Young Adults
4:12 ~ Coffee Bean Mondays – every Monday starting July 10, 3:00pm.
An Altar Server is a minister who is trained to anticipate the needs of the presider during liturgy and meet those needs with grace and reverence. This vital ministry involves over 100 of our young people in grades 5 through 12. Training takes place once a year over seven weeks in late winter/early spring. Parents are required to attend the first training session with their child(ren). Installation of first year altar servers takes place in October. We are so proud that our altar servers, led by Mr. Bob Shadduck, are invited to serve at the Cathedral on different occasions every year.
