Mary Wilber and sisters Ruthie and Riley Tucker comprise the St. Michael’s Angels. They play and sing at the 8:30 a.m. Mass on Sundays at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Keshena.
The girls all play guitar, and Ruthie also plays the ukulele.
“I enjoy playing and I do it for my aunt who passed away,” said Mary Wilber, 15. “She liked to sing and I do it for her.”
“I’m in it because I really like to play music, and it feels good to help out at our church,” said Riley Tucker, 15,
“I do it because I love to play guitar and ukulele,” said Ruthie Tucker, 17. “I like to give back to my church as well.”
They alternate Sundays, playing their instruments one week and being accompanied by Jonathan Wilber on piano the next week.
The group formed four years ago when Dennis Jansen, a member of St. Michael’s, organized a group of adults and kids to sing and play instruments at Mass.
