               Parent Involvement

Rehearsals will be held in the choir room this year, and space is limited. Parents may wait in the Sanctuary or return to pick up the child by 6:50pm. Parent (or other adult) involvement is welcomed, so please feel free to volunteer. St. Matthew is committed to providing a safe environment for all members of our faith community, especially children and vulnerable adults. All parish volunteers must be in compliance with the Diocese of Charlotte Safe Environment policies listed on the St. Matthew website at under "Safe Environment" at the bottom left of the Home Page.



We will communicate in person before/after rehearsals, through email, and through this Children's Choir website.
