The Parish Choir has begun a new fall season. The choir is open to all who love to sing. It is open to high-school age students and adults. The choir enhances liturgy with a wide variety of music, from chant and polyphony to contemporary music. The choir will sing at the 8:30 am Mass every first and fourth Sunday of the month and at the 10:30 am Mass every 2nd and 3rd Sunday. Rehearsals are Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm in the Church. The choir usually accepts new members throughout the year, but we encourage new members to begin in September. Contact Music Director, Michael Galdo, firstname.lastname@example.org to join.
Witness provides music for the Sunday 5:00 pm Teen Mass. Witness primarily plays modern contemporary style music to encourage the “full, active, conscious participation” of the youth. Rehearsals are held at 4pm on Sundays prior to Mass. Adults and youth, 8th grade and up, who sing or play an instrument, are welcome to join. Please contact Kevin Bills, email@example.com.
The St. Francis Children’s Choir, for Grades 2 – 8, rehearses on Tuesdays throughout the school year at 3:30 pm. All choir members will rehearse together, beginner level students will be dismissed at 4:15 pm and advanced students will be dismissed at 4:45. The choir sings about twice a month at various weekend Masses as well as some of the big feast days such as Immaculate Conception, Christmas, and Easter. Auditions will be held on Tuesday, September 21 in the music office. Signups will be done online HERE. The first rehearsal is on Tuesday, September 28 in the church.
