Funeral Choir ministers not only with their music but also with their presence at the funeral liturgies.  The choir assists those who may be too sad to sing and provide the sound of a singing congregation.  Funeral Masses and Memorial Masses are usually scheduled at 11:00 a.m. on weekdays and Saturdays. The choir is opened to parishioners who are available to sing during the week joining their voices to comfort friends, neighbors, and partners in faith, when they need our comfort most.  For more information and to join the funeral choir contact Kevin Callahan at 717-413-4758 or kevin.callahan@smoverlea.org
