Welcome to Music Ministry at Saint Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church
There is such richness in the guidance given in the Music in Catholic Worship document: "Among the many signs and symbols used by the Church to celebrate its faith, music is of preeminent importance. Music should assist the assembled believers to express and share the gift of faith that is within them and to nourish and strengthen their interior commitment of faith. The quality of joy and enthusiasm which music adds to community worship cannot be gained in any other way. ... music can also unveil a dimension of meaning and feeling, a communication of ideas and intuitions which words alone cannot yield." (MCW 23-24) "We gather at Mass that we may hear and express our faith again in this assembly and, by expressing it, renew and deepen it." (MCW 1)
Our Music Ministry is committed to our calling to enable persons to use their talents through music to worship and witness for our Lord.
Providing music groups for every age, the Music Ministry involves hundreds of persons in activities on a weekly basis. We place great emphasis upon the worship of God -- and upon the wonderful responsibilities of leading and equipping persons to be actively involved in the liturgy and music education.
St. Francis of Assisi musical groups regularly commit to music missions opportunities locally and wherever God leads. From preschoolers to senior adults ... from cantors to orchestra ... from classical to contemporary ... St Francis of Assisi Church gives everyone the opportunity to worship God through music.
With talent and time offered by all of our ensemble members, and the generous contributions of our Friends of Music, we are able to present musical offerings for your inspiration and for your enjoyment.
