Meet The Choir
 
The ACWC is composed of practicing Catholic women who are parishoneres in Albuquerque or surrounding communities.  The women love the church and most serve in their own parish, either in a choir or some other ministry.
 
Some of the parishes the women represent are:
St. Augustine at Isleta Pueblo, St. Therese, Our Lady of Guadalupe, San Felipe de Neri, St Jude, Queen of Heaven, Annunciation, The Aquinas Newman Center, Our Lady of Fatima, Immaculate Conception, Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Holy Child Parish in Tijeras.
 
Most of the women are available for Funerals and Wedding Ceremonies. Contact us for more info.
