Holy Trinity Abbey Choir Performance Raised €600 for St Vincent de Paul

On December 4th the Choir of Holy Trinity Abbey Adare performed a number of Christmas favourites in the Abbey Church, accompanied by Br Cyprian Love OSB on organ and raised €600 for St Vincent de Paul. Thank you to all who contributed so generously.

Holy Trinity Abbey Choir is a voluntary Church Choir and sings at 11.30am Mass in Adare each Sunday and at all liturgical festivities throughout the year including the open air Dawn Mass on Easter Sunday; the Live Crib at Christmas; ordinations; weddings and funerals. Now in its seventeenth year the sheer enthusiasm, perseverance and love of music and God have brought this choir together as a “family” which has received many graces.

Holy Trinity Abbey Choir

Holy Trinity Abbey Choir has gone from strength to strength since its formation in 1995. It has gone from a choir were its members were terrified to sing in public to winning “Church Choir of the Year” and “Best Limerick Choir” both in 2005 and 2007. The choir has also performed in a number of fund-raising concerts for both local and international charities side by side with performers such as: Frank Patterson; Finbarr Wright; the Garda Band; Limerick tenor Derek Moloney and renowned composer, Fr. Liam Lawton. In 2007 the Choir was very privileged to be part of the RTE televised Palm Sunday Mass live from Holy Trinity Abbey, Adare, a sacred and unique occasion. In the July 2008 the Choir made its inaugural trip to the USA – to Boston, Massachusetts at the invitation of Mr. Billy Higgins and Senator Jack Hart for a packed 12 day fundraising trip for Southhill Junior School. In January 2011 we joined with the Methodist Community here in Adare and Rev. Paul Kingston for the Annual Covenant Service which was broadcast live on RTE Radio 1.

The choir’s latest CD An Adare Christmas is available in the monastery shop.
