St. Mary’s has several different handbell choirs. The choirs practice both during and after school hours and perform at church liturgies and school concerts.
Most recently, the handbell choir was invited to perform at the National Christmas Tree and the Kris Kringle Christmas Market at the Charles County Fairgrounds.
This past year, they also performed for the Middle States Commission, the Home and School Association, Bishop McNamara High School and at local nursing homes. They were also invited to perform at Lessons and Carols, a concert that included 20 church musical ensembles in the region.
St. Mary’s is a member of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers.
