Well done to past pupils Olivia Stack and Mary Moylan who are involved in this beautiful Virtual Choir.
To celebrate Christmas 2020, the Diocesan Youth Steering Team embarked on an exciting new venture, a virtual youth choir. This diocesan youth ministry initiative presents an opportunity for young people to take part and celebrate Christmas in virtual unison and harmony. The young people, between 15 to 30 years old, come from school choirs, folk groups and parish choirs across the diocese. They recorded ‘Immanuel,’ composed by Michael Card, an American Christian singer-songwriter. The lyrics touch on the realities, hardships and difficulties people face in their everyday lives, offering great hope and joy, in the refrain, ‘Immanuel, God is with Us.’ This echoes the central message of the Christmas season; God is with us always.
