Good Shepherd Academy Students Sing in New York City
The Good Shepherd Academy Schola, an auditioned choir of twenty-six fourth and fifth grade students from Good Shepherd Academy in Kingston, recently participated in a Pueri Cantores choral festival and Mass at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York City. Over two hundred Catholic choristers from New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania came together to prepare anthems, hymns, and Gregorian chants for a sung Mass at the conclusion of the festival. Pueri Cantores, the official youth choral organization of the Catholic Church, sponsors this and choral festivals each year in churches around the world.
