Singing at the bedside of a family and friends is an act of compassion and love. Singing at the bedside of others is an act of boundless love and compassion.
Twice a month, on the 1st and 3rd Mondays, we practice our a cappella, paperless music in the choir room at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in St. Paul's Merriam Park neighborhood (1895 Laurel Ave -- the corner of Laurel and Howell). It's an open rehearsal from 7-9 p.m. - if you're curious it's a good way to feel out the waters.
On the ocassional month with five Mondays, we gather for a potluck on the last Monday. This event is open to all as well. In 2012 potlucks will be in January, April, July, October and December. Please contact us through the Email subscription form for location details.
Singing at the bedside is allowed once volunteer training with Asera Care is completed. Becoming a volunteer includes learning more about hospice, background checks to clear you for working with vulnerable people, other medical tests, and some other paperwork. 2012 training dates will be held in February, May, August and November. To find out more, please contact Ruth at Asera Care, 952-943-0009.
Are you ready to sing with your full heart? Come and join us at the bedside.
