We are very excited to celebrate a great milestone of twenty years at The Madeleine Choir School as we continue our restoration of Jacquelyn M. Erbin Hall. We welcome ALL who have been a part of our mission to inspire young people to become engaged scholars, responsible world citizens, and much more, to join us on our CELEBRATION WEEKEND November 11, 12 & 13.
Congratulations to MCS Eighth Grader, Zosia Weglarz, as the recent recipient of two awards for her watercolor entry titled “Sunflowers” in the 2016 Greater Avenues Street Fair. Weglarz received the most votes in the People’s Choice Award category, and she was awarded the first place ribbon in the 10-14 year old category by the street fair “professional judges.”
“Zosia is that student who puts the most time and thought into her art projects,” says Choir School Art Teacher, Erin Mattes. “It is obvious that she wants to create meaningful pieces and each project is very special to her. I get so much satisfaction from seeing the creativity that the students bring to all the different projects we do at the Choir School, and I have certainly enjoyed watching Zosia express and develop her passion and talents as an artist. I was not surprised to hear that she won these awards.”
The Choir School celebrated its annual investiture of the Cathedral choristers and servers on Thursday, September 22, 2016. It was a beautiful Mass at which our 25 St. Cecilia choristers, 25 St. Gregory choristers and 9 liturgical servers committed one year of service to the Cathedral and received the vesture to their various roles.
