In the Orthodox Church, the priest leads the services in prayer, and the cantor, choir or both give the responses.
The Three Shepherds Choir of Saint Mary Church evolved along the years from very basic cantors responses to a more elaborate participation of the choir and the congregational singing.
During Pascha season of 2005, soon after Fr George Ursache was assigned to our Church, The Three Shepherds choir was formed as a necessity in assisting the priest trough the most beautiful services of the year. The enthusiasm of those young participants grew and became a solid foundation of a respectful choir today, with his own name and its very distinct reputation.
While our services are in both Romanian and English, we encourage all participants to come regularly to all the services and join us in praising the Lord.
