Catholic Education Sunday 2021: The Blessing Virtual Choir

For Catholic Education Sunday this year on 12 September, ACCS is inviting students and staff of Catholic schools across Singapore to contribute recordings for a virtual choir, singing the recessional hymn of our live-streamed Mass.

To enable young children to participate, they only need to sing the AMEN, as demonstrated in this video.

Catholic Education Sunday has been celebrated since 2017, bringing together our Archdiocese’s educational community, forming 50,000-over students from nursery, pre-school and primary school to secondary school and junior college.

Despite Covid-19 restrictions, we can still find creative means to maintain our communal ties and worship together from our homes – the domestic church.

With this song, we want to bless all our Catholic schools, religious families, students and educators, as well as the Catholic Church in Singapore, especially in our 200th year.

Instructions on how to participate can be found here, with the four main choir parts: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. Current students are encouraged to wear their school uniforms while singing. Please upload your recordings by Saturday 4 September 2021, 11pm. Late submissions may not be used.
