Stonehill Chapel Choir consists of over 60 singers and instrumentalists who provide music for the 7:00pm Eucharistic liturgy on Sunday evenings in the Chapel of Mary.
The students who sing with Chapel Choir become a family, a body of people who give their time and talent on a weekly basis and enjoy one another’s company while growing in the rich Christian experience that Campus Ministry provides.
Chapel Choir provides music ministry at the majority of major events on campus. Individual students provide music ministry to several parishes in the Fall River and Boston Diocese, sharing the skills and knowledge that they learn while participating as members of the Chapel Choir.
While music remains the principle discipline of the Choir, the group is committed to ministerial education for its members throughout the course of the academic year. Retreats, fellowship and liturgical ministry are the interdisciplinary dynamics that contribute to the liturgical life of the Chapel Choir.

Singing Tours of Europe
Over the last eight years, one of the principle initiatives of the Chapel choir has included bi-annual singing tours of Europe. For some of our students, this experience will be an exclusive encounter with travel abroad. For others, the tour catapults them into discovery of the wideness of the world. The richness of the Choir tours - along with the ensued fellowship that inevitably occurs when singers travel and perform together - provides an indelible memory that will last a lifetime.
Our tours in Italy in 2004 and 2008 and Ireland in 2006 propel us forward into the next tour in January 2010 in Paris and Le Mans, France, the home of the founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Blessed Basil Moreau.
To support the Chapel Choir singing tour of France in January 2010, please consider making a donation through Stonehill's secure giving site. Please be sure to list "chapel choir" as your designation. We appreciate your generosity.
