Pope Benedict the 16th’s resignation has put a scheduled private concert by Toronto’s St. Michael’s Choir School in jeopardy.
As part of their 75th anniversary tour, the grades 5 to 12 choir boys will be in Vatican City April 10th for the chance to be part of the new pope s first general audience.
The group had originally scheduled a private performance for Pope Benedict.
The director of St. Michael’s Choir School says the group is still negotiating with Vatican officials to secure a private performance for the new pope.
They are scheduled to sing at St. Peter s Basilica in Vatican City for morning mass the Sunday following Easter.
The Archbishop of Toronto, Thomas Cardinal Collins, will celebrate the mass.
