Why the name?

"Holy Conversation" does sound like an exceptionally pious name, even for a parish blog. And we can't guarantee that everything here will meet the high standard the name implies. But the phrase comes from the story of our patron saint, and we think it fits. Here's why.

St. Scholastica was a sixth-century abbess who, according to the Dialogues of Pope Gregory I, used to meet once a year with her brother, St. Benedict. On the last occasion they were together, they spent their time "satisfying each other's hunger for holy conversation about the spiritual life."

We hope that this blog can become a place where the members of our parish can find a taste of the companionship and conversation that Scholastica and Benedict enjoyed so much. Welcome!

As you realize, both choirs have begun this new 2012-2013 season at the beginning of September.
It is NEVER TOO LATE TO JOIN!  Seriously, we'd love to have you come on board for either the Contemporary Choir or the SATB (4-Part) Choir.  The Contemporary Choir rehearses generally every other Tuesday evening from 7-8:45 p.m.  The SATB (4-Part) Choir rehearses every Wednesday evening from 7-8:45 p.m.  Both choirs sing on Sunday morning, the Contemporary Choir at the 9 a.m.
Liturgy and the SATB Choir at the 11 a.m. liturgy.  The choir year lasts from the beginning of September through the first week of June.

Both groups are wonderful faith communities to become a part of.  Both groups are comprised of fun and caring people.  Generally we start accepting members from high school age through advanced
(but we're not telling) age. No audition is necessary, a real plus for those who are shy.

If you might be feeling the slightest inclination to join, or at least inquire, you can contact me after
the 5 p.m., 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. weekend Masses.  Or, you can call my office at 412-781-0186 (x17).
And finally, you can email me at patbakercdp@saintscholastica.com.

I truly hope to hear from somebody (or countless somebodies) out there in the parish!
