Children's Choir and Youth Choir


St. John Vianney has a tremendous dedication to the growth of our community at every level of development. The 9am Mass on Sundays has a Children’s Choir. In order to share this experience with even more children we have shifted the practice schedule for Children’s Choir to 3:30 - 4:30 pm on Wednesdays to create better opportunities for those schools that get out later in the day. Furthermore, we are reintroducing the opportunity for a bell choir at the children’s level every other week from 4:30 - 5:45 pm.

Or maybe it’s time to try the Youth Choir…

But what if my children aren’t children but a little older and are looking for different opportunities? Our SJV Youth Choir rehearses every Sunday afternoon before the Youth Mass at 3:30pm. There are opportunities to learn at a more complex level and to try more contemporary styles of Liturgical Music and expression.

Join us at the parent meeting if you are considering either option to best ascertain your child’s placement and care.

Walk to End Alzheimer's

Join Team St. John Vianney 

Annual “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” at Heather Farms Park 

 Saturday morning, October 1

Sign-ups are September 10 & 11 after all Masses.

“Team St. John Vianney” will meet at the parking lot by the Faith Formation Office and walk over to Heather Farms for a brief on-site registration at 8:45 a.m. The walk begins at 9:30 a.m. and is 3 miles. Please wear SJV t-shirts or gold or red.

To participate, you need to register at http://goo.gl/3kAya1 [Alternatively, just go to the Alzheimer’s Association website (http://www.alz.org/); click the button for “Walk to End Alzheimer’s”; find the Walnut Creek walk; click “Join a Team”; on the next screen type in “St. John Vianney” in the box.] Walkers with donations of $100 or more get a t-shirt.

Online donations can be made at http://goo.gl/3kAya1. Off-line donations will be collected at Church or you can contact Greg Nerland (979-5661 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).

We will walk to honor our Pastor Emeritus, Fr. Jim McGee, and all parishioners and caregivers who have struggled with this disease. I will carry the names and memories of my grandmother and father with me. If you cannot walk and want me to carry the names of your loved ones who have been affected by this disease, let me know. Lynn Nerland (256-8380 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )

Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Walk is the largest event to raise awareness and funds for care, support, and research into Alzheimer’s Disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. 5.3 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and approximately 200,000 are under age 65 (early/younger onset). 78% of every dollar raised by the Alzheimer’s Association goes to research and to improve the lives of those with Alzheimer’s and their families. “We all have a brain, so we're all at risk for Alzheimer's disease.”
