Carmel church Kansanga and to provide singing opportunities, to these active worshipers as well as a platform were they can develop their musical talents .This is done through taking led in the praise and worship during Holy Mass cerebration , setting stage shows , recordings among others.
The choir started with few members not more than ( 7) seven in October of 2015 , but as we continued in Developing a brotherly relationship with each other and the musical approach which provides some answers to questions in the youth full age. The Carmelites youth choir now proudly houses a total of 52 youthful voices,
Our strength is in these youths who provides the congregation with hymns blended with sounds, from the few instruments we have i.e , The piano, saxophone and drum kits ,that not only sound good to their ears but also touch their souls ,this could be one of the reasons we ranked among the best If not the best in our area of operation ,
The diversity our choristers with many from different backgrounds and nationalities i.e D.R.Congo, Burundi, Rwanda, Kenya, Cameroon, Nigeria etc, provides harmonic difference in our performance and bring out the university of the God we serve.
The mission of The Carmelites Youth Choir is to enrich, inspire, motivate, and engage the community in hymns and sacred songs in the celebration of the Eucharist and other liturgical celebrations
Our Primary Goal is to see that fellow Christians, starting with the youth, not only attend Mass but also actively participate in the sacrifice with praises and thanks giving.
Our dream goes beyond singing in mass; we would also like to extend praises to each and every individual’s home, workplace and entertainment Centre’s using different avenues like recorded albums, staging shows.
- Committed to Biblical values and non-apologetic about faith in Jesus Christ.
- Non-discriminatory in its ministry to youth.
- Non-political and seeks to serve all irrespective of their political or ethical background.
The Carmelites Youth Choir seeks to achieve our mission by:
- Being rooted in Catholic Spirituality that seeks the overall growth of the members;
- Being committed to rehearsals.
- Having discipline and respect for authority;
- Learning new hymns;
- Being knowledgeable of the liturgy and various liturgical seasons of the church.
Plans for the near future
We would like increase the beauty of our performances so as to achieve our goal and objectives the choir was set for , in the community and our target group the youth thus change their perception in each activity they do, looking at Christ as their focal point . We think that when we attain the instruments of worship we are missing , some new choir garments and sound amplification systems our goal and primary purpose of this will be attainable .
With outside performances , album recording /sells and approaching people of good will we hope that this drive of getting instruments of praise will be achieved.
