Newport Church Choir

Newport Church Choir is made up of approx 20 singers under the direction of Kathleen Loftus and Mickie Walsh, the organist. They have practice once a week and sing at the 10am Sunday Mass (except the 1st Sunday) Holy days and funerals.
The Church choir continues a wonderful tradition - some members are grand children and great grand children of past members. We enjoy what we do and have lots of laughs and although not always “great” - we can rise to the occasion when necessary. Our age range at present 32-92 years !! Would love new members.
