Charlene Shambare

I am a Psychology student at College of Saint Mary. I had been a parishioner at St. Cecilia Cathedral when I was given the opportunity to audition for the choir. I was drawn to the choir by the depth of the prayers I could hear in every note they sang. Music has always been a big part of my life and something that has drawn me closer to God. Being a member of the St. Cecilia Cathedral choir has impacted me in many ways, but most importantly during my journey of entering the Catholic Church. Some of my favorite memories have been being able to hear other St. Cecilia parishioners discussing what an impact the music the choir provides has on their spiritual lives. My hopes for the future are that I am able to continue ministering in the Cathedral as a member of the choir as well as continuing to grow on my own spiritual journey.
